Rolls-Royce motorcars are often considered as a powerful symbol of wealth, power, and opulence. Kings, oligarchs, business tycoons, and even religious gurus have often amassed big fleets of Roll-Royce cars and displayed them as a measure of their accomplishments. However, you won’t expect to find the name of a company offering funeral services on that list, will you? However, a UK-based family funeral service boasts one of the largest Rolls Royce Phantom VII fleet in the whole world. The company named A.W. Lymn ensures that grieving families can give the recently departed loved ones a fitting send-off on their final journey. The company has the largest Rolls-Royce funeral fleet which includes Phantom VI and Phantom VII models along with classic models like the Rolls-Royce 25/30 Limousine.
A.W. Lymn is a family-run company that has been in the business since 1907. To stand out from the rest, the fleet maintained by A.W. Lymn is finished in a sleek silver livery instead of the usual black. Each of the Rolls-Royce hearses is converted and customized in Italy by Biemme Special Cars. Before returning to the UK for company use, the bespoke hearses are sent to Germany for weight testing. A.W. Lymn’s Managing Director, Matthew Lymn Rose says: “Having to undergo such stringent testing with each and every hearse can be both expensive and time-consuming. But it means our vehicles comply with every necessary regulation and are therefore fully approved for use anywhere.” In addition to hearses, the company also has standard Roll-Royce cars to transport the family members in the funeral procession. A.W. Lymn also has other luxury cars in its fleet like Bentley and Mercedes-Benz cars, along with offering bespoke options which includes everything from a horse-drawn carriage, to a Land Rover Defender, or motorcycle hearse, and even a London taxi.
