Thank you for your kind and sensitive service.

AW Lymn were extremely good under very difficult circumstances. I needed to arrange a funeral for my brother but wasn't able to be at their offices in person. They were able to help me at arm's length over the phone, via email and post. Ellie and Beryl were particularly good, always professional, helpful and everything was done with an attention to detail. The celebrant Victoria was also excellent and always available at the end of the phone or email. Thank you very much for making the ordeal less painful.

About Us

St. Albans House, situated in Arnold, was opened in 1996 by Alison Maddaford, the president of the National Association of Funeral Directors at the time, and extended during late 2012. It is now run by Russell Kemp who has a very good knowledge of Arnold’s people, ministers, churches and customs. Russell gained his Diploma qualification with the National Association of Funeral Directors and is assisted by our funeral arranger Ellie Nightingale, from Calverton, who gained her Diploma in Funeral Directing in 2017. Beryl Spencer is the receptionist and administrator.

Our Arnold branch is the only independent funeral directors in town. The building features a parking area, reception, two private reception rooms, two visitation rooms and also a visitation suite with an adjoining room where the family can spend time in private. We also have cold room facilities and a small memorial showroom.

Russell, Ellie and Beryl will be more than pleased to offer any assistance you require, whether this is ’at need’, or simply an enquiry for the future. The office is open from 9 am to 5 pm Monday to Friday, and 9 am to 12:30 pm on Saturday. All our A W Lymn offices are also open at any time by appointment and our telephone line is available every day of the week, 24 hours a day.

This branch covers all of Arnold and the surrounding areas including Calverton, Daybrook, Epperstone, Killisick, Lambley, Lowdham, Oxton, Redhill, Woodthorpe and beyond.

A W Lymn The Family Funeral Service is managed by Nigel, Matthew and Jackie Lymn Rose, who are keeping the family tradition in providing the best service for bereaved families since 1907.
