About Us

Although A W Lymn’s head office moved to Robin Hood House on Robin Hood Street in 1977, many people in the area still refer to this office as “Lymn’s on Bath Street”.

The head office, built by George Rose in the late 1970’s, has several in-house funeral directors to help families with their funeral needs, and also houses most of the company’s administration staff.

The office is staffed by funeral director Tony Knowles, funeral arrangers Megan Rosier and Alan Matthews, office administrator Sharon Draycott and receptionist Barbara Williamson.

The opening times are Monday to Friday from 8 am to 6 pm and Saturdays from 9 am to 12.30 pm. Our staff are also available to meet with you after office hours. Please call our telephone number at any time to arrange a convenient appointment.

Besides the administration and reception area, the premises have a coffin showroom, family rooms, visiting rooms, cold room facilities, a full fleet of hearses and limousines, a vintage fleet, stone masonry services and a florist.

Our head office serves all of Nottingham city centre and its surrounding areas including Bobbers Mill, Colwick, Hyson Green, Mapperley, Radford, Sherwood, Sneinton, St. Ann’s, The Meadows and beyond.

A W Lymn is owned and managed by the Lymn Rose family. Nigel Lymn Rose, one of the company’s directors, was president of the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD) during its centenary year in 2005.

    It was an absolute pleasure working with you and your family to deliver a wonderful and well deserved send off for a father who was openly and deeply loved by you all.  My colleagues who drove and attended the funeral all thought the black horse hearse and 2 bay horses made for a respectfully fitting tribute. Thank you, Alan.

    A.W.Lymns was so helpful and understanding and they are so friendly and caring. My whole experience with them from the moment I walked through the door was amazing. I’d like to say a big Thankyou and speak very highly off to Alan Matthews and Stephen Wakeling. Without them I couldn’t have done it. Thankyou.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are so pleased that we were able to help such a lovely person through a very traumatic experience. The stories that you told about Ray were extremely heart-warming. He seemed a wonderful person and we hope we did his memory justice. The whole team wishes you all the best. Thank you, Alan.

    A respectful and excellent service.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Angela. I have known members of your family for many years and indeed your niece worked with us over twenty years ago and is still fondly thought after. It was therefore with added sadness that our family firm was called upon to undertake the funeral of your late husband. I am sure it was a help to see so many of the Italian community in the Cathedral and I am pleased that the service we provided was to the high standard you expected. Thank you. Nigel Lymn Rose

    Thank you for your kind review, I am glad that I was able to make the day into a special occasion for you, and hope that your son had a safe trip back to New Zealand.

  • 5 Carol Collin 24th Nov 2018

    Thank you all,you took all the worry away,It was just right for Peter

    Carol, it was with much sadness that I was called upon to conduct the funeral of my dear friend Peter. It makes things doubly difficult when acting both in a professional capacity and as a friend. I am therefore very grateful that the service provided by our family and our family company helped you and your family at this very sad and emotional time‎. Nigel

  • 5 Margaret Taylor 18th Nov 2018

    From the very first phone call I made to A.W.Lymn everything was handled professionally and smoothly by Alan Matthews. A funeral for a loved one is very difficult to arrange but Alan made things so much easier and straight forward. His communication with me (Pete Sheridan) for every detail and every step of the planning was first class. So from the initial phone call right through to the burial everything and everyone including the bearers were first class and very professional. ......Thank you.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this very kind review. You were an absolute pleasure to deal with as you knew exactly what you wanted and had almost all aspects of the funeral decided beforehand. You went out of your way to be contactable for the various choices and decisions that needed to be made throughout. I am so glad that everything went well and as you had envisioned. Kind wishes to you all. Alan.

  • 5 Lyn Roworth 24th Oct 2018

    I have been dealing with Lynms at Robin Hood House for many years now and trust them to do a totally professionally and friendly service every time.This time for my late husband Philip Roworth,Nigel did a wonderful job to make sure everything was done to perfection including the white doves at the end  of the service. Barbara on the reception is so lovely, she sorts everything out for you. I truely would recommend your company to anyone. Thank you so much for everything. Kind Regards Lyn Roworth x

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Lyn. Thank you so much for your kind review of the services provided by our family business in general and Barbara and I particular. As you are now aware I had worked for Philip some forty years ago and although I had not been in contact in recent years I continued to have a great respect for him and to have many memories of our times together. It was therefore with both pride and sadness that I was with you at Philip's funeral. There was a natural warmth and it was apparent that so many people's lives had been better by knowing Philip. Again thank you for your kind comments and I am glad that we were able to ignore the scheduled timetable and visit Notts County on route to the crematorium. Nigel
  • 5 Thomas Thrall 25th Sep 2018

  • 5 Chloe Lymn Rose 27th Aug 2018

    As the owners of this Company this is the first time that we have had the opportunity to leave a review on FuneralZone. As a family we would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank all the staff both involved throughout the process and others for their kindness and support. Each and everyone showed us care and compassion and the funeral itself was carried out to perfection in a professional, traditional and dignified manner. A very fitting tribute to our Company Chairman. Thank you.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    When my father, lifelong friend and mentor George died we found ourselves requiring the services of a funeral director. Our family firm, with which Dad had been involved for approaching seventy years and where I have worked with him for the last fifty years was obviously selected. Being a close family member and mourner I was not sure how I would feel as a client of our own company but the experience proved to be uplifting and the service provided by my friends and colleagues at A W Lymn The Family Funeral Service was exemplary. I sincerely thank all those involved on behalf of my mother, sisters and wider family for the support they gave to us, for the way they looked after Dad and for the quality and level of service that they all provided. I now have some personal experience as a bereaved family member of the service we offer and can fully understand why so many of our clients give us the accolade of a five star review. Thank you. Nigel Lymn Rose Chief Executive Officer

    Thank You for your kind help, at a very difficult time.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Brenda. It was sad to be called upon to conduct Roy’s funeral having known him for so many years. I am grateful that the services of our staff were helpful at a difficult time for you and felt privileged to be with you, your family and your friends on the day of the funeral. Thank you for your kind review. Nigel
  • 5 Brenda Cooper 5th Jun 2018

    The quality of the service of all your staff was exceptional, especially Jackie who was very professional,caring and understanding. Thank you Nigel so much for the special hearse you kindly used for Barries final ride. Once more thank you to everyone.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Brenda. I am really pleased that Jackie looked after you so well. As you know my memories of Barrie go back over forty years and his association with our family company and all he did for Ernest Smith will never be forgotten. I am pleased that you liked the gesture with the hearse and Penny and I are so sorry that we could not be with you at the time of the funeral. Thank you for your kind and thoughtful review.
