Ellie was fabulous throughout the whole process. She was professional and compassionate and nothing was too much trouble. We had some last minute challenges which she handled so calmly and efficiently . You gave my Dad a dignified funeral thank you.

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.

  • 5 Mark Charles 17th Dec 2019

    Right from the start we had the sense of professionalism, dignity and respect. The funeral package we wanted was unusual and involved black horses and carriage to the church and changing to hearse to the cemetery and back. The whole arrangements for the cemetery, church, flowers, Orders of Service, music etc. were executed with the highest efficiency and minimal input from us. The day of the funeral, although a sad occasion, was one to remember. Many thanks to Russ and his team at Lymn's Arnold for the excellent service, for taking care of us so well and making the day go so smoothly.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are glad that Russ and his team were able to support you in creating a bespoke service with a variety of different elements to create a fitting day that you will remember. Russ joins me in thanking you for taking the time to leave this wonderful review. Thank you.
  • 5 Leonard Bradley 16th Dec 2019

    My son was only 26 years old and was taken by that evil cancer. We were extremely well looked after by A.W.Lymn who were totally committed to our needs and wishes at all times and very attentive to detail. Would thoroughly recommend them Many many thanks to Beryl, Ellie and Tina for getting us through a very difficult time.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I am so sorry that it was necessary for you to require our services for the funeral of your Son at such a young age. We are however gratified to hear how well Beryl, Ellie and Tina looked after you and that their support made this very difficult time a little more bearable for you. Thank you.
  • 5 Paula Richmond 6th Dec 2019

    A W Lymn - Arnold Branch - It was our mother's funeral on 2nd December. Everything went smoothly and efficiently. I can't thank Lymn's enough for their professionalism, help and support at what is a traumatic time for the family. They kept in touch with us throughout and were friendly every step of the way. The viewing room in Arnold was so tranquil, I, as her daughter felt comforted when I was in there with her. I believe it was Ellie who had done my mum's make up and dress. I couldn't fault it, just the right shade of pink lipstick and a natural look about her, which is exactly what I'd asked for. Thanks again Lymn's, it's not the first time we've had your services and it certainly wont be the last.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this very kind and detailed review about the service provided by the team at the Arnold office. We are glad that the visitation suite felt tranquil and that Ellie made Mum look natural and peaceful. We are also pleased that all everyone you encountered was professional, comforting and efficient. Thank you.

  • 5 Gerry Kitchingman 19th Nov 2019

    We experienced a prompt, professional and sympathetic service from the Arnold office staff. Nothing was too much trouble and there was a good level of communication between Lymns, family and other parties prior to the funeral. On the day of the funeral, we were impressed by the respectful and ceremonial way the event was delivered. At such a difficult time, we felt Lymns provided the support that a family needed. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind words, it was my pleasure to look after you. I am pleased that you felt everything from the communication to the funeral ceremony was respectful in every way. Thank you, Russ

  • 5 Claire Lisa Brown 19th Oct 2019

    The service we got from Lymns was outstanding - professional, compassionate, caring! My Dad couldn’t have been given a better send off and for that I will be for ever grateful. Both Russell and Beryl that I dealt with the most are just beautiful people. Keith Brown who did the Eulogy was amazing everyone said it like he knew my Dad - couldn’t have asked for more.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It is wonderful to read how well Beryl and Russell looked after you during this sad time and how they helped you create a fitting send off for your Dad. We are glad that their service was outstanding and that they were caring, compassionate and professional throughout. Thank you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
