Jackie Lymn-Rose was very professional and understanding at all times. Nothing was too much trouble, helpful suggestions were made for our family's emotional needs and all of our questions were answered respectfully, quickly and with plenty of detail. We knew what to expect at every stage of the process and we were taken through all aspects of our services at the appropriate times. There is a level of professionalism, empathy and attention to detail with A W Lymn that would be difficult to find elsewhere.

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.

    Outstanding service from lymns. Professional at all times always go that extra mile to make your loved ones last journey perfect. A proper family feel to the service they provide. 

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Vicky. Thank you very much for your kind response. As you know John’s relationship with our family business goes back nearly fifty years. He was, throughout most of his working life, a loyal and much loved colleague and friend of the people we serve in the local community. I thought that the letter that he wrote for all the family that was read at the funeral was so moving. In so many ways John’s life touched others when they were at their lowest ebb and for the help, support, care and friendship he gave in those situations he will always be remembered with such high regard. Thank you.

  • 5 Susan Dodd (Alexander) 7th May 2017

    Outstanding service from the initial phone call,through to the funeral. A.W.Lymn carried out mum's wishes with sensitivity, professionalism, kindness and care. Lymn's guided us through every step with compassion and made a very difficult time flow much smoother for all our family. The guidance, support and advice we received was excellent. We would like to thank all the staff at Lymn's especially to Julia. We would not have managed without you. Highly recommended. Thank you Sue Dodd and family x

  • 5 Jenny Percival 20th Apr 2017

    From the initial phone call, through the planning of the funeral, the funeral service and to the scattering of the ashes, the guidance, support and advice we received was excellent. This ensured we were able to arrange the funeral that was tailored to our needs and perfect for us. Nothing was too much trouble. The staff were sensitive and courteous, there to attend to our every need, but also aware of when to stand back and give us the space we needed. I cannot thank them enough for all they did to make such a difficult time easier to bear.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Jenny. Being a close member of the family, and having managed the Bingham office of our family firm for many years prior to his retirement, Derek’s funeral was inevitably going to be a very emotional and difficult time for us all. I am very sorry that because I was out of the country I was unable to be of practical support on the day of the funeral but I know that our Sister Jackie and all our family and staff worked hard to ensure that Derek’s wishes were carried out in an exacting professional and yet comforting and supporting manner. I also know that Canon Alan Haydock was an immense help and that Pearl and all those at the Plough in Wysall made the after funeral reception very special. Thank you for taking the time to respond to me in such a public manner. Thank you, Nigel
  • 5 Coleen Mulligan 18th Apr 2017

    We thank Nigel and all his staff at Lymns for a very professional service at our very difficult time. Very much appreciated by all the family. Kind Regards, Steve Mulligan

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Steve. I was sorry to have to see you at another family funeral. It was great to hear you Mum’s life story and then to hear her singing on the CD at her own funeral. It was nice to see so many friends supporting you and your family and I do think that it helped as the sun was shining. Thank you for the very kind review of the services provided by the staff at my family company. In particular I will ensure that both Barbara and Kirsty are aware of your kind comments. Thank you, Nigel.

  • 5 Isobel Craig 24th Mar 2017

    A W Lymn carried out my mother's personal wishes for her funeral with great sensitivity, professionalism, kindness and care. They spent considerable time with her before she died, planning and recording exactly what she would like as and when the time came. They made what is obviously a very difficult time for all the family much easier and less stressful by their attention to detail, thought and patience, which was always combined with a quiet and reassuring efficiency. Every member of staff displayed the same thoughtful, kind, professional approach whenever we had dealings with them, and we thank them all. I would not hesitate to recommend the services of this family-owned and run firm. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Both Jackie and I would like to thank you for this very kind and detailed review of the service she provided both at the time of pre-arranging the funeral with your mother and when the sad time came. We are pleased that her attention to detail made this difficult time a little less stressful for you and your family and are glad that you found the rest of the team at Nottingham to be thoughtful, kind and professional. Thank you.
  • 5 Jasmine Bailey 24th Mar 2017

    From start to finish Harry's funeral was handled with great care and compassion. Every tiny detail was catered for. Lymns guided me through every step and made a very difficult time flow with dignity and compassion. Many, many thanks to all at Lymns, especially to Matthew and Julia.

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Jasmine, thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review. I thought the service for Harry was very personal and fitting, right down to his golf bag and clubs travelling beside him. Julia and her team really did all the hard work, and I am pleased we delivered the service you would have wanted for him. With my best wishes.
  • 5 David Crampton 22nd Mar 2017

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    David and Lynda, thank you for the very kind comments with regard to my sister Jackie and I, and all the staff at our family company. It was indeed a privilege for me to be involved in your mother's funeral and it was so touching to see such a close family all involved with the personal touches that you wanted in the service and that would have been so important to your Mum. Thank you.
