All the staff at the Arnold branch handled my husbands funeral in a very professional manner. They were extremely helpful with everything in a sympathetic way, nothing was too much trouble. Everything went to plan. I cannot fault them in any way. The celebrant was an excellent choice. Thank you to everyone.

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 Emma Stevenson. Beryl Spencer is the receptionist and administrator.

AW Lymn's Arnold branch 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. There are also cold room facilities and a small memorial showroom.

Russell, Emma 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 A W Lymn offices are also open at any time by appointment and the 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 Margaret Brook 2nd Apr 2022

    Everything was efficiently organised with gentle sympathy from all staff.
    On the day, Russell checked arrangements at the crematorium and found that the words of one hymn were not the same as the words in the service booklet and quickly got this changed.
    Lymn's provided an excellent service.

    A.W. Lymn, Arnold Team replied
    Thank you for your kind words. We are pleased to hear that the service we provided to you was excellent, it was an honour to be able to serve you and your family.
    Part of my role on the day is to check everything runs smoothly, so seeing the slight error on the hymn at the crematorium was just one of the final checks to do but I am glad that it made things that little bit better for you. Russ.
