Family funeral service reveals Nottinghamshire expansion plans

Worksop funeral home

A.W. Lymn, the family funeral service, has revealed its latest property acquisition in Worksop.

This ground-floor funeral home, featuring residential flats above,  is the 28th funeral home within the ownership of the family funeral business, which is based in Nottingham.

Located on Newcastle Avenue, the 4,000 sq ft property was formerly a daycare centre.

A.W. Lymn is in the process of seeking planning permission for a comprehensive refurbishment of the building.

Pete Clarson, commercial director at A.W. Lymn, said: “This is a significant purchase for A.W. Lymn, a major milestone in expanding our services wider into the furthest reaches of Nottinghamshire and adding another funeral home served by excellent, dedicated and experienced funeral directors to our ever-growing network across the county.

 “2023 has been an important year for our business as we celebrated several key milestones for both staff and our brand, such as the 20th anniversary of our purchase of the Ilkeston Co-op Funeral Service. Purchasing our 28th funeral home is a testament to our long-established commitment care to for the communities we serve and those we hope to serve in the future.”

Funeral director Jonathan Baker, said: “It will be an honour to oversee the new funeral home in Worksop. We pride ourselves on our high level of service at A.W. Lymn and we’re looking forward to offering our support to those in the local area.

“Having worked at A.W. Lymn for 22 years now, it’s incredible to see the growth of the fifth-generation family business over this period, expanding both in size and in the diverse range of services that we offer to meet everyone’s needs. Working as part a close-knit team to help the bereaved during a time of need is a real privilege and I look forward to bringing our exceptional service and customer care into the community of Worksop.”
