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.

  • 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.

  • 5 Jean Rigg 20th Oct 2018

    On behalf of my bereaved aunt I would like to thank your staff for their professional and empathetic approach to their work. They sympathetically guide you through the bereavement maze of decisions and notifications.....at no stage did their attention seem rushed but they were always there to give guidance and recommendations. They enabled me to plan my cousins Nottingham cremation with ease from Kent whilst being hugely supportive of my elderly aunt. This was typified by their courteous handling ( literally) of my aunt on the day of the funeral. Mark and Russell did a super job as did our driver who enabled us to drive to Bramcote sedately and yet somehow relaxed. Huge thanks. Marion Hudson

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to write this detailed and positive review. We are pleased that the support given to both you and your Aunt by all the team at Arnold and the staff on the day of the itself made this confusing and difficult time a little easier for your both. Thank you.

  • 5 Janet Callaway 15th Sep 2018

    I can highly recommend Lymns, they were professional and caring from the first telephone call to the funeral service and burial. I first spoke to Russell at the Arnold branch to make an appointment and he was very polite and courteous and explained everything to me. We then dealt with Deanna when we went to the office. She was excellent and guided us through the process with complete professionalism and empathy. The funeral itself went without a hitch, the drivers and everyone involved were polite and courteous and this extended to the burial too. The little touches such as a basket of rose petals to sprinkle onto the coffin and the vase of flowers were much appreciated. Lymns made what was a very difficult day much easier with their exceptional service. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your positive, kind and very detailed review. We are glad that the service provided by every member of the team at Arnold made this difficult day easier for you and are pleased that all the little touches were appreciated.

    i can't speak highly enough about all of the staff I came into contact with at the Arnold branch of Lymn's while recently arranging my Mum's funeral.  It made the process so much easier during a very emotional time. Everything ran very smoothly on the day and this helped to provide lovely memories of a very special day for us - remembering and celebrating my Mum's life. Thanks to everyone'

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.

Read more: How to arrange a funeral

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.

Read more: What are disbursements

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.
