A.W.Lymn The Family Funeral Service

Welcome to A.W.Lymn - The Family Funeral Service

Our History, Heritage and Vision

In August 1907 Arthur William Lymn conducted his first funeral and the undertakers originally trading as A.W.Lymn and now known as A.W. Lymn The Family Funeral Service was formed.  Since then the business has continued to maintain the founder’s vision of placing the emphasis on:

  • Quality of service
  • Value for money
  • Putting profits back into the company for the benefit of the client.

Our Family Owned & Managed Business

The business is still wholly owned and managed by the founder’s family:

  • The business is currently controlled by the fourth generation – Managing Director Nigel Lymn Rose, Nigel’s sister Jackie and wife Penny
  • The fifth generation is actively involved including Nigel’s son Matthew and nephew Ben
  • Although now officially retired, the third generation – Nigel’s father George and mother Sheila still maintain an interest and keep a watching brief.

Our Brand Values

Families throughout Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield and the surrounding area have had funerals taken care of by Lymns and the firm intends to carry on doing so in the same dignified way for many years to come, offering:

  • Excellent reputation
  • Highly qualified and experienced staff
  • Accessibility -  network of local offices serving the Nottinghamshire & South Derbyshire
