Could not have received more help, are and understanding especially from Russell. Lymn's service was very efficiently organised and dignified. Thank you.

Dawn Burton 3rd Feb 2019

The whole experience was dealt with professionally and sympathetically. The actual day of the funeral ran very smoothly which is needed on an occasion of that nature taking the strain away from the family.

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.

    My brother and I found the whole process carried out by A.W Lymn, to be excellent from start to finish. Everything was dealt with by Russell and Ellie, in a sensitive and caring way, from the initial talk, to the actual funeral. All our questions were answered and we were guided expertly through the whole process. A difficult and sad time was made easier by the professionalism of all the staff at the Arnold branch. We cannot thank them enough.

  • 5 Deanne Taylor 25th Jan 2019

    Always a superb service

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Deanne, The team at our Arnold office, being Beryl, Ellie, and Russell, ‎all had a soft spot and immense admiration for Sylvia. Arnold will never seem the same without our neighbour who popped in regularly prior to her move to assisted care and whom our staff continued to visit after that move. It was a privilege tinged with great sadness to be asked to look after the arrangements for our friend Sylvia. Thank you for your kind words. Nigel Lymn Rose.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

  • 5 Barbara Eustace 6th Jan 2019

    I was in two minds as to if I should rate as excellent - how can a funeral of a loved one be described as such? But the management of this sad occasion was undertaken in a very professional manner, as always. The celebrant used just the right tone for the service, and it was a commemoration of my mothers life. I would use again, but having said that, I hope that's a long time in the future.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this very kind and balanced review of the service provided our the team at Arnold. We completely understand your dilemma in relation to the rating system but unfortunately this seems to be the way these things now have to work. We are however glad that everything was just as you had wanted on the day. Thank you.
  • 5 David Brailsford 24th Dec 2018

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

  • 5 Susan Bowler 18th Nov 2018

    This is a very professional, caring company who were absolutely fantastic during our time of grieving. Not experiencing a family death, Ellie was exceptional from the moment we asked her to care for our dad. The celebrant Cheryl was outstanding. Many friends talked about Cheryl at Dad's wake- she was a credit to her profession and made a very sad time, memorable for all the right reasons. Thank you A.W Lymn, Ellie and Cheryl.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this lovely review. We are pleased that Ellie looked after you so well right from your very first meeting with her and have forwarded your review onto Cheryl so she can see the kind words you have written. Thank you.

    All went well on our sad day with Lymn's of Arnold taking care of all the major and minor details for the funeral. The staff were extremely caring with Cheryl contributing hugely with her caring eulogy about Charles

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

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.
