About Us

The Wollaton branch originally belonged to the Ilkeston Co-op Funeral Service before being incorporated into the A W Lymn group in 2003. The funeral home was formerly based on Arleston Drive in Wollaton, but was moved in late July 2014 to a purposed designed site on Wollaton Road called Deer Park House.

The new premises has off-street car parking and a beautiful visitation room with its own private waiting area.

The office was formerly a police station and features a large, bright, modern client reception, as well as state-of-the-art rooms.

The office is run by Funeral Director Kirby Cranshaw.

The funeral home is open Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm and on Saturdays from 9 am to 12.30 pm. You can also make an appointment to see someone after hours via our telephone number.

The branch covers all of Wollaton and its surroundings including Bilborough, Bramcote, Nuthall, Strelley, Trowell, Watnall and beyond.

A W Lymn The Family Funeral Service is managed and owned by the Lymn Rose family. Nigel, Jackie and Matthew Lymn Rose are the directors of the company.

    Jane was fantastic, she put us at ease straight away and made us feel comfortable. This was the first time we had lost anyone close to us and Jane took us through the process step by step, she was professional and extremely friendly. We couldn't have wished for anyone better. We also dealt with another member of staff who was extremely helpful. We would definitely recommend Lymn's funeral directors and all of their staff.
