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.

    The service from start to finish was excellent. The Funeral Director on the day couldnt have done any more for us than he did and this was noted and commented on by many of the congregation and the family would like to thank himself and his colleagues for everything.

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Mrs. Dalzell. Thank you for your positive review, and extremely kind words. I looked after your family personally on Monday as a member of the team at Arnold was on holiday, and I am really pleased that my presence was helpful for the service. Your thanks are greatly appreciated, and will be passed on to the rest of the team too.

  • 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.

    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.

    Yes very attentive Excellent service

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.
