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 Wendy Honeyman-Smith 26th May 2017

    This is such a sad time, but the funeral for my Father was superb, and really helped us in our bereavement. AW Lymn gave us great personal service and really listened to what we wanted, we were able to put all our confidence in them and concentrate on saying goodbye. Ellie and Russell were both very professional, but warm and friendly too. Ellie put us in touch with Sarah Willis, a wonderful celebrant who worked with us to provide a service that did justice to my Father. Every detail of the day itself went without a hitch, and I must say that the new crematorium at Gedling is lovely.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this kind and detailed review. We are pleased that the warm, kind and professional manner of Ellie and Russell gave you the confidence to entrust the funeral arrangements to them alleviating some of the worry for you at this sad time. We are also glad to hear your positive words about both Sarah Willis and the crematorium at Gedling.

My Mum's Service was so lovely and I am sure she would have been very proud. A truly exceptional service and I would definitely recommend Lymns to anyone who needed this service.
