Their service from when we first walked in until reaching the after funeral gathering was nothing short of first class. Louise is a lovely caring person who always put our wishes first.

About Us

Our Long Eaton office is located at Lime Grove in Long Eaton, which is in peaceful surroundings inside the cemetery gates at West Park.

The site was purchased from Dick Webb funeral service in 1981 and opened as an A W Lymn funeral home in June 1982.

The building was the local public mortuary and features an unusual copper roof. As well as a large reception area, the premises features family rooms, visiting rooms, funeral cars from our fleet and parking on the outside, and it was completely refurbished in 2013.

Richard Marshall is the area manager and is aided by funeral directors Louise Cook and Geoff Abrahart. Louise and Geoff are in the office Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 5 pm. If you need assistance or to meet with a funeral director after hours please call our telephone number, which is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The branch covers all of Long Eaton and its surrounding area including Breaston, Castle Donington, Chilwell, Draycott, Hathern, Kegworth, Sawley, Sutton Bonnington, Toton and beyond.

Nigel Lymn Rose, along with his sister Jackie and his son Matthew, manages A W Lymn The Family Funeral Service, ensuring all families receive excellent care at all times.

  • 5 John Hassall 12th Oct 2017

    The family wish to express their sincere and heartfelt thanks to Louise and her team at Lymm's Long Eaton for their highly professional services. We were always treated with the utmost dignity and respect. No request or task was too small so it was an excellent service for our aunt's funeral. At all times we were kept advised as to the order of events throughout what can be a very difficult and unhappy time. The vehicles were spotless, arrived on time with professional staff who were appropriately dressed, very respectful and the time passed in a highly organised fashion. We never felt rushed or hurried and were allowed to meet grieving relatives at length. We would have no hesitation in recommending Lymm's to anyone wanting a professional, respectful and sympathetic service.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

  • 5 Joan Breakwell 9th Oct 2017

    We were very pleased with the help we received. Everything was done efficiently and in a respectful, but friendly manner. We gave quite complex instructions for the music we wanted, and these were followed to the letter. We would certainly recommend Lymns to our friends.

    I was very pleased with the service offered by AW Lymn in Long Eaton, from start to finish. They were helpful and informative throughout the initial process and planning and ensured that on the day, the funeral went according to plan. The dignity they showed at the funeral was first class. I would highly recommend this company.

  • 5 Stuart Parrott 25th Jun 2017

    This was the second family funeral to be organised by Louise at Long Eaton. Again from the outset she dealt with the arrangements beautifully, especially on the day. Particularly, late changes were made without any problem. All the members of the team were professional and considerate to our needs and for that I thank them now. A funeral is hard for fsmilies, but knowing that some of the pressure can be safely left to others is of great comfort. I would have no hesitation, therefore, in saying that my experience was far better than I had envisaged at the beginning and the credit must go to Louise. Thank you again. Stuart.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this positive review and your kind words, particularly in regard to how well Louise looked after you at this difficult time. We are pleased that nothing was too much trouble and all your requests were met enabling you to create a special service. Thank you.

    The whole process from initial consultation with Sarah to the settling of the final bill was handled expertly and with a great deal of compassion and care. Once instructed the whole process was dealt with for us and taken out of our hands and was clearly in good hands, Geoff worked with great efficiency and sympathy and, along with his team, the day of the funeral was handled expertly.

  • 5 Paula Martin 9th Mar 2017

    Lymn’s treated us very well, with a professional manner and personal touch. They were attentive to our needs. They sat with us, explaining all the necessary steps and other options available and their cost, step-by-step. We never felt rushed; they gave us our own time in which to decide matters. They were available on the phone anytime and even came out to us on a home visit. Ourselves, the rest of the family and friends all thought that they provided a service that was a fitting tribute to our loved one and was very professionally conducted.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this detailed and positive review of the service you received from the team at Long Eaton. We are glad that they made you feel at ease, were always available and lead you through all the options without ever making you feel rushed.
