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.

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, 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 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.

Thank all staff involved to achieve our wishes. Yours sincerly Jean Fish on behalf of the Fish and Hodgkinson Families

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Jean, thank you for your very kind review and in particular the kind comments that you and John made to me on the funeral about the help and assistance provided by Emma and Beryl at our Arnold Funeral Home. It was interesting to hear about your family’s historic connection with our business and the Nottingham and District Aquarist Society of the 1950’s and it was nice for me to meet your son Jonathan, the artist of several pictures from the 1970’s that now hang in my home. Again it was a pleasure to meet you all and I am pleased that the service we provided proved helpful at this sad time.
  • 5 Anthony Moore 19th Mar 2021

    Thanks to Nigel, Victoria and Richard for your care and all who attended physically and virtually, especially the overseas family share that sentiment.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Tony. Thank you for your kind review and lovely comments about Emma and our staff at Arnold. They were much appreciated. I also thought that Victoria the Celebrant at the service and Richard who lead the eulogy where exceptional and I am very grateful that you mentioned them in your appraisal. I was saddened but nonetheless honoured to be involved in Anthea’s funeral and would take this opportunity to thank you both for the support that you have given to MS fund raising over so many years.

    A.W Lymn did an amazing job, the staff on the day were extremely friendly, polite, helpful and very respectful. Leading up to the funeral Emma Stevenson emailed me with updates and informed of anything that I needed to do etc due to this I didn't feel like I didn't know what I was doing or what would happen next. All in all A.W Lymn did such a great job and I am extremely grateful for that.

  • 5 Caroline Hennigan 19th Feb 2021

    I can highly recommend AW LYMN ARNOLD. Their service was the model of professionalism, from the moment I first contacted them, until after the burial. One person, Emma, liaised with us throughout and she made what is inevitably an upsetting process as bearable as it could ever be. Communication was via phone, email and in person and was clear, sensitive and helpful and Emma coordinated the service with our Priest excellently. The funeral, overseen by the excellent Russell, went very smoothly and with great dignity. C A HENNIGAN

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

We were able to give Dad an amazing send off at Gedling Crematorium, where everything was done to such a high standard. Could not have asked for more. Russell and colleagues were so lovely putting us at ease and helped us through a very difficult time. Thank you to everyone who was involved in looking after Dad and giving him the send off he so deserved.

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.
