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 Valerie Cupitt 6th Feb 2017

    It was a difficult process to go through for me, arranging mum's funeral. I was unsure of the process i.e what to get from where. Beryl on reception was helpful and patient in reminding me what was outstanding. There was always someone available to take my call when I needed to check something or ask another question. Emma provided us with an order of service which was beyond my expectations. The support and service received from all staff was fantastic. From collection of mum's body to taking us on an expressed route to the wake. I cannot thank Russell enough for making the funeral run smoothly. Staff curtesy towards my sister and myself was professional and courteous.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this kind and detailed review. We are pleased that every member of staff was able to help and support you so well through out this difficult process and that you found them all to be professional and courteous.

  • 4 Delia Bilbie 23rd Jan 2017

    Respectfully, friendly company.  Think funeral services need to provide a more personal service where family and friends can tell the company what THEY want rather that being offerd a package as people ideas for funerals are changing.  Thankyou for helping us at this very sad time.  

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this positive review of the service provided by our team at Arnold, we are very pleased that you found them to be respectful, friendly and helpful at this sad time. We note your comment in regard to offering a tailor made service rather than set packages and I hope that our staff made you feel that you were able to do this. If you do not feel that we achieved this objective then one of my family would be happy to discuss your concerns directly with you. If this is something you would like please let me know your preferred method of contact and one of the Lymn Rose family will be in touch. Thank you and kind regards

  • 4 Angela Davies 2nd Jan 2017

    I would have put excellent but as this is addressed to 'Mary' who is the deceased person it is a bit of a concern.  She was Alice Mary Williams called Mary. I am her daughter called Angela. We we're a little uncomfortable sitting 3 large people in the back of the Rolls Royce, and we did have just under 15 minutes to wait at the crematorium, although not necessarily your  fault, they were running late. Cheryl Smilth, the celebrant, was amazing I would certainly recommend her. Thank you Ellie for selecting her for me.  Not only did she deliver a superb service, she was very supportive and helpful as we developed it and  nothing was too much trouble. She felt like a friend after numerous emails and discussions. Her attention to detail was superb and the smooth running of the service and the time at the crematorium was a pleasure.  Ellie was fantastic and found all my music and hymn requests. She gave me great confidence to trust you all and rightly so. Everything was as I wished it to be.  All the Arnold staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all, the whole experience was excellent and went exactly as I hoped that it would.  A big thank you to all concerned, I would certainly recommend you all without any reservations.  Angela Davies 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Angela, Initially I would offer our most sincere apologies that this review was incorrectly addressed to your mother's middle name rather than your own name. Ellie has spoken with Funeralzone to attempt to get this corrected but we obliviously appreciate that this should never have happened in the first place. We would however like to thank you for taking the time to leave this kind and detailed review of the service provided by both our team at Arnold and Cheryl Smith. We will ensure your feedback is passed onto Cheryl so she can see the kind words you have written. Thank you.

Thank you.
  • 5 Peggy Joyce Lock 26th Dec 2016

    The funeral directors made us feel very easy and relaxed on the initial appointment and booking. Their professionalism and accurate timings on the day of the funeral was exemplary and we were cared for all of the time.  Thank you very much.

  • 5 Anthony Terence Poyser 4th Dec 2016

    The very caring overall attention to detail to my dear Jean was wonderful. I saw her in the chapel of rest ,and she looked absolutely beautiful,after her illness in hospital they gave me my Jean back as my final memory I don,t think I could have picked a more professional firm to help me to deliver her to her God.   Thank you.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your wonderfully kind review of the service provided by the team at Arnold. We are so pleased to hear that we gave you a positive final memory of Jean.
  • 3 Paul Hewitt 25th Nov 2016

    The pre service arrangements were all very good, however, they arrived 20 minutes late on the day of the funeral which was unrcessairly stressful for the family and not what I would have expected from a reputable firm. 

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Mr. Hewitt. Thank you for the time spent discussing the delay following the funeral, and listening to our explanation. I am sorry that our miscommunication of timings combined with some lateness led to undoubted anxiety on the day, I am only grateful the service was not effected, and that the way the rest of our team looked after your needs was good. Thank you again.

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.
