Samantha Weiss 13th Mar 2020

The family would like to thank Lymn's and in particular Russ for his professionalism and respectfulness and the dignity that he gave to my father on the day of the funeral and burial. Lymn's were exceptional at organising the collection of my mother from hospital in a wheelchair in their designated wheelchair friendly vehicle so that she could attend the funeral and made the planning and organising of the funeral and my mothers attendance very easy and straightforward. They were very friendly and approachable and I would highly recommend them.

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 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 Linda Frank 2nd Mar 2020

    Everyone was very good & helpful & kind the funeral all went to plan & it was a beautiful service. My only niggle was I would have liked some more deeper blue in the wreath.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind words, we are glad that everything went to plan and that everyone was kind and helpful. We are however sorry that you were a little disappointed with the colour of the tribute. Unfortunately blue is quite a difficult colour to incorporate in flowers as there are only a limited selection that are naturally blue in colour. We acknowledge that the delphinium used on this occasion was pale rather than deep blue and apologise if this was not as you had hoped.
  • 5 Linda Parr 1st Mar 2020

    We would like to put on record how excellent the service was at A W Lymn of Arnold, we couldn't really have asked for more. As you are aware at such a sad time of losing one's brother you have so much on your mind and we found that all the staff put our minds at rest, they explained and helped us immensely from beginning to the actual service. On the previous day to the funeral, Russell telephoned us at home to tell us how things would proceed and we were very grateful to him, nothing was left to chance. Many thanks to all concerned, you were all very knowledgeable and caring. Linda

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this wonderful and detailed review of the service provided by all the team at Arnold.

They would also like to thank you for the kind card and gift you brought to the office for them. Thank you.

    The day we never wanted to come - the burial of our beloved mum. Lymn's made the whole day very special & very personal. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

  • 5 Peter Bailey 15th Feb 2020

    I couldn't have received better kindness, care and efficiency on behalf of Mrs Wilson ( Shelagh) from a fantastic team had she been a superstar. Which to me she was. Everyone, without exception, said what a beautiful send-off we gave her and Glyn, in the streaming of the service, said "what a lovely, lovely service." Thank you all most gratefully for kindly making the memories of Shelagh so fitting.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased to see that the team at Arnold were able to help you create a beautiful send off and are glad that relatives from afar were able to feel part of the service via the webcast. Thank you for your kind words.

  • 5 Lee Harmston 11th Feb 2020

    While it seems somewhat strange leaving a review of such a sad occasion, on behalf of myself and my family I’d like to say how pleased we were with the service we received from Lymn’s.  From our initial meeting with Ellie, who put us at ease with everything that needed to be arranged, through to our regular contact with Beryl, who had a kind and compassionate nature about her. And then finally on the day of the funeral, Mark (I believe that was his name) who was absolutely fantastic with making sure everything ran smoothly on the day, he was faultless, and I’m so glad we had him there to look after us on the day. In fact all the Lymn’s staff that were there on the day were superb.  Therefore I would have no hesitation in recommending Lymn’s to family and friend’s. I know we as a family would not hesitate in using Lymn’s again, butI hope, not for a long time to come.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We really appreciate you taking the time to leave this very kind and detailed review. We agree that it does seem a little strange to review such a sad occasion but by doing so Ellie, Beryl and Mark are able to see the difference their care, compassion and support has made to you and your family. They all joining me in thanking you for this lovely review and for your recommendation.
  • 5 Jodie Chettle-Robb 11th Feb 2020

    We are really pleased that Russell and the rest of the team at Arnold were able to help you create the best send off possible for your Dad and they join me in thanking you for your kind words.
