Funeral directors, A.W. Lymn The Family Funeral Service, has extended its services into Leicestershire with the opening of a new funeral home in Bottesford.

With 27 funeral homes across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, the new location at William Roberts House on Bottesford High Street marks A.W. Lymn’s first venture into Leicestershire.

Established in Sneinton in 1907, A.W. Lymn has been serving and supporting the bereaved in the region for almost 120 years.

The new single-story property in Bottesford, formerly occupied by Richard Watkinson estate agents, will feature A.W. Lymn facilities including a family arranging room and chapel of rest.

Pete Clarson, commercial director at A.W. Lymn, said: “This is a major milestone for A.W. Lymn, expanding our services across the Midlands and branching into Leicestershire. We’re proud to be opening our 28th Funeral Home and bringing our dedicated and experienced team of funeral directors to Bottesford and its surrounding areas.

 “Already 2024 has been a triumphant year with several key milestones and new projects underway for both the business and our staff, such as the recent planning permission success for our very first Barrow site and cemetery in Calverton. It’s a very busy time as we continue to expand our services across the region but throughout this, our commitment to the highest standards of care for the families we serve remains at the core of everything we do, as it has done for so many years.”

Funeral arranger Andy McFeeters will manage the funeral home.

He said: “I am truly looking forward to meeting the people of Bottesford and its surrounding areas and offering them the personalised and reassuring services and support that A.W. Lymn has proudly provided for over a century. Being part of the community is incredibly important to us, so we plan to spend time getting to know this new area and working closely with locals to ensure we can meet each individual’s needs when it comes to bereavement support and guidance.”
