Guide to Funeral Directors in Derby

Traditionally the county town of Derbyshire, Derby is a fascinating historical city and one of the birthplaces of the Industrial Revolution. From the 19th Century onwards, Derby grew from a market town into the centre of British railways and train manufacture, as well as an industrial hub of the north.

Serving a population of approximately 250,000 are around 21 funeral directors operating from 40 funeral homes. With a good variety of independent, family-run, or national companies, residents of Derby should have a good choice of local funeral directors.

According to the most recent data, Derby’s population comprises almost one-quarter BME (black and minority ethnicity) communities, including people of Pakistani and Indian heritage. Consequently, after Christianity and non-religious beliefs, Islam and Hinduism are the most common religions in Derby. As a result, you can expect most Derby funeral directors to be experienced in providing funeral services befitting a range of religious beliefs and cultural traditions.

Derby City Council is responsible for managing six cemeteries across the city, with new burial plots available in Nottingham Road Cemetery and Spondon. Burials in reopened graves or the interment of cremated ashes may be accepted at Uttoxeter Old Road, Normanton, Chellaston and Mickleover cemeteries. In additional, Markeaton Crematorium has facilities with two service chapels and a Garden of Remembrance.

From the very first meeting with Mark Chapman, we were treated with the up most respect and dignity. He was attentive to all our needs, during this difficult time. He went above and beyond to ensure all our requests were met, and to make sure they day went as planned. We would like to thank Mark and all at A.W Lymn funeral services. We would highly recommend their services.

This is the second time in a year that i have used Lymns. There support throughout the process is dealt with compassion patients  and empathy.  Their guidance throughout this difficult and stressful time takes the pressure from the individual, who’s having to deal with their loss. I can’t thank lymns enough and a real special thanks to Dan Barnes and Kevin Hall for their help and support though such a difficult time.
