The level of service & compassion we received every step of the way was excellent. Joanna was so helpful, she went through every bit of detail with us every step of the way & nothing was too much trouble. We were also treated with the same level of compassion & respect by the staff on the day. You have all made a very stressful, upsetting time a lot easier to cope with, thank you.

Christina Weldon 30th Mar 2019

Lymns could not have been any more caring and compassionate. The whole experience of arranging my husband's funeral was 1st class from start to finish.

Sandra Keward 1st Mar 2019

Was very happy with the service we received at this sad time for us.

About Us

Our Clifton office was opened in 1990 and was refurbished in 2015 to better serve our local families. The office has a warm and welcoming ambience, with one visitation room, one family room, a reception area and cold room facilities. The premises also has off-street parking at the rear.

In December 2017 Joanna Widdowson moved from our Aspley office to be the funeral arranger for Clifton. Joanna gained a diploma in Funeral Arranging and administration (DipFAA) from the National Association of Funeral Directors in October 2018. Senior funeral director Brian Miles is responsible for the area and, along with Joanna, makes sure all families have the best care possible.

We are open from Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 5 pm, although we are also available at other times - please call our telephone number and arrange an appointment. We take calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The branch covers all of Clifton and its surroundings including Barton in Fabis, Clifton Grove, Clifton Village, East Leake, Gotham, Kingston upon Soar, Lark Hill retirement complex, Silverdale, The Meadows, Thrumpton, Wilford and beyond.

Nigel, Matthew and Jackie Lymn Rose manage A W Lymn The Family Funeral Service, a business founded in 1907 by Arthur W Lymn.
