Nottinghamshire’s largest independent funeral directors, A.W. Lymn The Family Funeral Service, has transformed an old bank to expand its offering to the community of Stapleford.
Fully equipped with two chapels, a larger onsite car park and an extended mortuary, the new Stapleford home is now based at Half Crown House on Derby Road.
The move follows the need for more space and easy customer access as the directors continue to expand across the region, with a total of 27 funeral homes throughout Nottinghamshire and South Derbyshire. For more than a century the family run business has been helping the bereaved in the region, with quality of service and value for money at the heart of its ethos.
The fifth-generation family business first arrived in Stapleford in 2003 as part of the group purchase of the Ilkeston Co-op Funeral Group, taking over six sites – the largest acquisition completed by the Lymn Rose family to date. Previously located at Parker House on Church Street, the directors have since gone above and beyond to help local families through every step of the funeral process, offering support 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
On why they decided to make the move, Pete Clarson, Commercial Director at A.W. Lymn, said: “We are continuously reviewing our facilities at our funeral homes across the region and looking for ways we can offer the best service to our customers when they come to our homes. After removing the banking counter and internal walls, we were able to start with a blank canvas to give purpose-built facilities designed around the families we serve.”
Funeral arranger, Tracey Sweeting-Rowe, who has served the bereaved in the Stapleford community for five years, said: “I can’t wait to move into the new building and put my stamp on the place. Our new location allows us to continue to offer the same excellent service we pride ourselves on at Lymns, while providing more room to ensure our visitors’ time here is as comfortable as it can be.”
