Anne Morrell 19th Dec 2017

The funeral involved repatriation and a considerable delay before cremation, both of which Lymns handled with the utmost professionalism and efficiency, but also with great compassion.  Nothing was too much trouble. We got exactly the right balance on the day of the service too. Given the complications, we would have expected to be faced with a very large bill, but that was not the case. Can't recommend Lymns highly enough.

Mark Fletcher 18th Dec 2017

Our family were delighted with the service that we received. The funeral itself went very well - we are hugely grateful to Julia for the kindness and sensitivity that she showed us.

Sheila Crawford 11th Dec 2017

All staff so helpful and a credit to the company.

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.

    Stacey was incredible organising Dads funeral. Barbara was our day to day contact and she was nothing short of perfect. She handled the constant revisions for the order of service, and she authentically comforted family members on the day of the viewing (she went above and beyond with my wife as no request was denied). On top of that, she supported me wash and dress my Dad. She was patient, sensitive and warm. I can not sing her praises enough. On the day, Matthew was a class act. He rolled up his sleeves and participated in the burial of Dad, and many times could be heard singing the hymns louder than anyone else. He navigated the very hard job of being invisible whilst at other times actively participated and added to the celebration of Dads life. He was more than a funeral director and he was a great source of strength. He also looked after my Mother with TLC. Everyone from your company made a very difficult time easier. I'd go as far to say that your company will allow us to look back on the day and smile. Thank you

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Irving Jnr, I cannot thank you enough for your warm and positive review on behalf of your Mother, Sister and yourself. Stacey, Barbara, the entire team and I are appreciative of your feedback, and take great comfort in knowing that our contribution to Dad's day made it a little easier and memorable for you and the family. Best wishes, Matthew.

    Absolutely fabulous service, made to feel at ease. Everything was taken care of, staff were very kind and considerate. the funeral was more than what we could have hoped for, with special thanks to Joules, Dave, Nev (special thanks from your passengers) Tony, the motorbike driver and all who helped us in our time of need.  Thank you from Trish and family Bless x

    I would like to sincerely thank Matthew for his professionalism.  His attention to detail resulted in my mother's funeral being as good a day as we could have hoped for; my mother would have loved it. Megan was also great; an asset to the company.  Thank you. 

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Anne, you are really too kind. Thank you for your comments about Megan and I, it was a lovely way to celebrate a long life, well lived. With my best wishes, Matthew.
  • 5 Marcus and Pauline Wakely 1st Oct 2017

    Everything was very competent and professional, dignified and kind. Made things easy for us, with no hassle. So thank you. The 12 year old twin great grandsons still talking about their ride in a magnificent Rolls Royce!

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    It was a privilege to be involved in this funeral and I am pleased that the service of the staff at our family company, and in particular Megan, helped the family with their sad loss. I am pleased that the great-grandsons were able to focus on the journey in the Rolls-Royce. I thought that the service both in church and at the crematorium had a lovely feel and it was particularly touching that the grandson remembered his grandmother’s wish of twenty years ago and was able to spontaneously play the special music on the organ at the crematorium. I am grateful to Father Marcus and all the family for their kind words about the service we provided. Thank you. Nigel Lymn Rose CEO

  • 4 Grazia Ventrella 6th Sep 2017

    My husband passed away in the home and Lymn handled my beloved with care and empathy. The funeral directors came out to speak about the funeral arrangements and dealt with everything in an acceptable manner. My only gripe would be the handling of the coffin to see these guys deal with many a day, it wasn't carried out in a great fashion. Russell was with us throughout the arrangements and funeral - very professional, respectful. Great to have a familiar face throughout. Well done and thank you.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your balanced and generally positive feedback. We are pleased that Russell was professional and respectful throughout and that you took comfort from the fact that he looked after you during the arrangements and on the day itself. We are however sorry that you were disappointed with the handling of the coffin during the service but would thank you for allowing our Managing Director, Matthew, the opportunity to discuss this further with you. Russell would also like to pass on his thanks for the kind words you have written about him.
  • 5 Paul Donald Neary 19th Aug 2017

  • 5 Andrew Roussos 30th Jul 2017

    Nigel and the team did our daughter justice. Everything was perfected to the last detail. They brought us back home wanting nothing more. Can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Andrew and Lisa. This is a funeral that we really desperately wish that there had not been the need to arrange and conduct. The circumstances of the death are so tragic and nobody can express the sorrow that we all feel. Both of you were amazing with your strength and your wish that Saffie-Rose achieved international fame. In my time as a funeral director, now approaching fifty years, I have never experienced such emotion as that expressed in the short video clips produced by Saffie-Rose's friends, many only of her age. What a beautiful girl who, at such a young age, has made her mark on this world. My family, staff, sister Jackie and I were all saddened but immensely privileged to be involved with your family on this sad occasion. Nigel
  • 5 Christine Hickey 19th Jul 2017

    At such a difficult and stressful time, all the team made us feel comfortable, supported us at every stage and most importantly respected and looked after the precious person we had lost.   A special thank you to Sharon and Russell who could not do enough for the family. Thank you all for being amazing.   Kind Regards. C

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

  • 5 John Scruton 8th Jul 2017

    The personal service, preparation and care in arranging the funeral for my mother was exceptional. The owner and staff of Lymns could not have been more helpful or considerate at what is a very difficult time. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Mr Scruton. Thank you for your very kind review. I am sorry that my son Matthew who knows your son Ben was out of the country and unable to oversee the funeral arrangements for you. I am however pleased that the services provided by Julia and I in his absence proved to be to your satisfaction. Thank you. Nigel Lymn Rose.
  • 5 Tracey Raymond 7th Jul 2017

    Outstanding company. Faultless service and support from our first telephone conversation with Lymns to the end. Nothing was too much trouble or a problem for them. Every wish was tendered to and they took care of my mum, and us with the utmost care and professionalism. Our Funeral Director was Julia Carty and she was amazing, supportive, caring and professional. A true credit to her profession. Thank you so much.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this kind and detailed review. We are pleased that Julia's car and support helped you during this sad time and are glad that the rest of the team offered faultless service and support throughout. Thank you.
