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.

    Extremely considerate and well organised funeral services.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    David. It was a pleasure to serve you and your family and I am pleased that you found the service provided by me and Ellie and my staff at Arnold to be as you would have wished. On a personal note I would say how I found that there was a lovely warm feeling at the funeral ceremony which I think was helped by the fact that you selected a Saturday for the service and consequently there were no other families at the Crematorium. Thank you for the very kind feedback.

  • 5 Lesley Danby 17th Apr 2017

    We were helped almost every step of the way with the funeral arrangements for my brother in law. Ellie, who dealt with most, if not all of this for us was superb. She was so helpful with everything, there was nothing that was too much trouble for her. On the day of the funeral everything went smoothly and all A.W. Lymn staff were brilliant and so helpful. Couldn't fault any of it and would certainly recommend them.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind review. We are pleased that you found Ellie and Kirsty to be helpful and brilliant, with nothing being too much trouble, and that everything went smoothly for you at the time of the funeral. Thank you.
  • 5 Robert Matthews 15th Apr 2017

    A.W. Lymn (Arnold) provided an excellent service in what were difficult circumstances at the time of my mum's passing. Ellie was our first point of contact and has been very professional throughout keeping us updated with what to do next and giving advice on how to proceed. Everything provided has been of the highest quality from the coffin, the flowers & order of service, to the hearse and cars, pall bearers and drivers. Lymn's made a difficult time as pleasant as could be and did mum and us proud.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your positive and detailed review, we are glad that you found everything to be of the highest standard and that Ellie and the rest of the team at Arnold did your Mum proud at this sad time. Thank you.

    Russell and the staff at A W Lynn, Arnold provided an excellent and professional service at this sad and difficult time. They were kind and courteous and undertook Mum's funeral arrangements with compassion and understanding. Russell especially took us through every step of the planning and kept us informed of details right up to the funeral day itself when he was indispensable - kindly and professionally taking charge when we needed it most. We are so grateful and thank A W Lymn with all out hearts. We would certainly recommend their services. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Ellie, Russ and I would like to thank you for this kind review, they are glad that they were able to take away the worry of making the arrangements for you at this sad time.
  • 4 Janet Howland 2nd Apr 2017

    Only complaint was: I was led to believe that if payment for the funeral was made in advance a reduction was applied however it was not possible to do this as invoices are not sent out till afterwards. Otherwise everything else was excellent 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this positive review of the service provided by the team at our Arnold Office. We are however sorry that you felt that you missed out on the early settlement discount due to our invoicing procedure but hope that Ellie’s subsequent explanation and offer to extend the discount as a one off gesture was appreciated by you and your family. Thank you.

  • 5 Janet Dawson 21st Mar 2017

    Lymns were very professional and sympathetic in the way we were treated at the death of our mother/mother in law we could not have asked for anything more. Ellie has a professional yet comforting manner and the professionalism continued on the very difficult day of the funeral with Russell giving gentle yet empathetic leadership to us on the day.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased that both Ellie and Russell offered a sympathetic, comforting and professional service at this sad time and would thank you for the kind words you have written about them.

  • 5 Helen Burnett 24th Feb 2017

    Living a considerable way away from where my Aunt died, I was able to rely on A W Lymn staff to sort out all the funeral arrangements. Their  staff guided me through the process with great care and consideration. I was able, via a single visit, and  a few phone calls, to make all the necessary arrangements, and the funeral went off smoothly and well. I would certainly highly recommend them to others. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind and detailed review. We are pleased that everything was handled so smoothly for you, particularly with the distances involved, and would thank you for your recommendation.

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.

What are disbursements?
