A W Lymn has revealed that it has transformed an old bank in Stapleford into a new funeral directors to expand its offering in the community.
The new funeral directors feature two chapels, a larger onsite car park and an extended mortuary.
The move follows the need for more space and customer access as the directors continue to expand across the region, with a total of 27 funeral homes throughout Nottinghamshire and South Derbyshire.
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.
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.”
Tracey Sweeting-Rowe, funeral arranger who has served the bereaved in the Stapleford community for five years, added: “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.”
