From making the initial phone call to after the funeral everyone at A W Lymn have been amazing. Truly understanding, providing guidance and most importantly allowing the time you need to make those decisions. So pleased I chose them for my parents funeral, cannot recommend them enough

Mark Creer-Thornton 1st Dec 2021

At a time of grief this company has such a professional and caring approach to possibly the worst job on the planet. Methodical and meticulous in their approach it is very easy to give them a 5 star.

John Pearce 29th Nov 2021

Our family have used Lymn’s on many occasions and they never disappoint.  This time they excelled move more. From our first meeting with Emma, and the caring follow ups, all was calm, emotionally intelligent, professional and reassuring.  Our family from the USA were really impressed with the quality if service. The cars are stunning, the bearers and senior staff brilliant and, as for Cheryl Smith, our lovely celebrant - she was more than we could have expected. She took time, listened, there was no rush and she captured our loved one perfectly. The service at Gedling Crematorium went without a hitch,  it’s a lovely setting. The Orders of Service were so good too. All in all a sad but wonderfully uplifting experience - I can and will recommend Lymn’s without any reservation.  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 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.

    Even the smallest detail was carefully taken care of during the organisation period. On the day of the funeral, every thing went smoothly due to the planning beforehand and the considerate guidance from the funeral vehicle drivers and assistants. The service A.W. Lymn provided was second to none.

  • 5 Joy & Barry Chamberlain 23rd Nov 2021

    We wanted a very simple funeral for Mum as was her wish. The service from Lymns was excellent and in spite of the simplicity, their provision was absolutely golden in its quality. From the moment we met Russell at home we felt in safe hands. He was softly spoken and respectful at this extremely difficult time. We were never encouraged to take on more than we wanted or spend more money, he helped us to organise everything within our means and ensured that the plan was perfect. Lymns were in constant communication throughout the days before the funeral usually via Beryl & Emma who were extremely helpful and supportive. On the day of the funeral we were organised beautifully with kindness, respect and courtesy. There was no rushing or clock watching, we were treated with sensitivity. The whole team was fantastic and Andrew drove us with such care to the Crematorium. We cannot thank the team at Lymns enough for their care throughout  the whole process which is one of the most difficult times for families. We trusted them implicitly and would highly recommend their services to anyone who needs a funeral organiser whatever their budget. Thank you all so very much. Joy, Barry & Ken

    A.W. Lymn, Arnold Team replied
    I’m so pleased that the service we provided to you from start to finish went so well. We believe that a funeral is unique to each person, therefore the service and products we would provide to you would always be in line of your wishes. Thank you so much for your kind words and if there is anything else we can ever do to support you either now or in the future please just ask. Russ.
  • 5 Jane Casterton 16th Nov 2021

    The service provided was 100% caring and sensitive  This is the second time we have used Lymns in 7 months Firstly, for our step mother and latterly for our father. Russ was our assistant. We really felt he held our hand and was so helpful.  The webcast provided was well used by many who could not attend. It was also very user friendly. We hope that we will not be seeking funeral services again but Lymns are definitely our go to funeral directors  Thanks so much Jane Casterton 

  • 5 Breda Dale 14th Nov 2021

    AW Lymn's, based in Arnold, have been so supportive and helpful following the passing of my Dad in October. Emma, Beryl, Louise and Nigel have been professional and supportive and guided us through the processes we needed to navigate. Thank you so much for your help.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your so very kind review. It was an honour to be present at your father’s funeral and to hear the wonderful accolades about the amazing achievements he had made in his life and the devotion he had to his wonderful family and to the Church of the Good Shepherd. Again thank you for your comments on behalf of all at our family company. Nigel Lymn Rose.
  • 5 Sarah 9th Nov 2021

    Looked after dad with such grace and dignity. On the day of dad's funeral Russel who looked after us was so nice, they bought dad home and did a drive by his place of work, they did so much and made a very hard day into a beautiful one.

    A.W. Lymn, Arnold Team replied
    I am so pleased that the service we provided to you was the best it could be for a hard day. It was great to see at least 120 people at the service which proved that Trevor was such a popular and well respected man and I thought the inclusion of the VW campervan hearse really personalised the service. Thank you, Russ.
  • 5 Denise Roberts 8th Nov 2021

    We felt we were in very capable hands. From beginning to end you guided us through every step and so on the day of the funeral everything ran so smoothly. We would certainly recommend your first class service.

  • 5 John Landon 29th Oct 2021

    The only comment we would like to make is attention to detail when dressing... mum's buttons on her cardigan were not buttoned up properly which I had to address as she was a very meticulous dresser.. just a point to think on for future reference, apart from that everything was perfect.. thank you.. staff very helpful and kind

    A.W. Lymn, Arnold Team replied
    We are pleased that you thought all went perfect with the service we provided for the funeral, other than the buttons on the cardigan of course. We are sorry that you felt disappointed with this. We have taken this on board for the future so thank you for this constructive feedback. Russ.

Nothing has been too much trouble for them, there has never been any rush over anythingand the funeral went so very smoothly. I was so well looked after on the day and felt very safe. I can not thank the whole team enough for looking after not only my dear husband but also myself and family and friends. A truly dedicated, hardworking team. Thank you all so very, very much.

  • 5 Linda Scott 12th Oct 2021

    The service provided by Lymns was excellent, a date was arranged with a quick turn around and whilst initially I worried whether everything would be sorted in time, it soon became clear that everything was under control. The teamwork shown on the day was second to none and each member of staff involved played their part respectfully. The celebrant suggested (Anja) was  professional and the perfect person for the job. Thanks to everyone involved on the day including Emma and Beryl.

    A.W. Lymn, Arnold Team replied
    Thank you for such lovely words for the team at Arnold and I am glad you were happy with the choice of celebrant. Emma
