About Us

Started by Andy Askew in the early 1990’s, this funeral home was incorporated into the A W Lymn group in September 2004.

Andy has remained as a funeral director at A W Lymn and has conducted many of the funerals in Shirebrook, becoming very well known in the community. Nowadays, Andy is based in our Mansfield Woodhouse branch, so Jackie Potter currently arranges most funerals at Shirebrook.

Jackie can assist you Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm and also in after-office hours by appointment.

The branch features private parking, visiting rooms, a reception area, family rooms and cold room facilities.

The office covers all of Shirebrook and its surrounding areas including Berry Hill, Blidworth, Church Warsop, Clipstone, Forest Town, Harlow Wood, Ladybrook, Mansfield, Pleasley, Rainworth, Ravenshead, Warsop, Warsop Vale and beyond.

Matthew, Jackie and Nigel Lymn Rose currently manage A W Lymn The Family Funeral Service.

  • 5 John Fletcher 30th Oct 2018

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank A.W.Lymn undertakers for the excellent funeral and service they provided for the burial of my mother in law Dorothy Fowler on the 15th of October at Shirebrook Cemetery. Jackie at the Shirebrook branch was extremely helpful and advised us on the nescessary proceedures we had to follow. The drivers and the coffin bearers all made the whole funeral run like clockwork. Once again thank you to everyone.

    I would like to give a huge thank you to all the staff at A W Lymn, Jackie gave my daughter and I a lovely warm welcome into her office made us both feel relaxed through what should have been a terrible ordeal. The gentlemens that took Kenneth and ourselves to the crematorium was very kind and gentle in dealing with everyone getting into the car and extremely respectful through the whole process even to giving Kenneth respectful nods. With it been a non religious ceremony we was offer a gentleman called Adam Humphries to take the service. Adam came to visit my daughter and I at our home again very respectful gentleman who gave a lovely recall of our memories and tributes of Kenneth on the day. They helped to make Kenneth's send off warm and loving.
