Emma and the team at A.W. Lymn Arnold were everything you would hope for at a time when you need it most. Professional, patient, kind, they guide you through the choices you have and the decisions that need to be made with no pressure, offering guidance and support where needed.

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.

  • 4 Roger Hale 15th Jun 2021

    Well organised, pleasant efficient people to deal with. Unfortunately there was a ***-up with one of the pieces of music in the service which was not the fault of the funeral directors. Only other criticism of the funeral was that the sound quality at the Gedling Crematory was poor (which was my choice of venue)

    Jackie Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to review our services, it was most unfortunate that an incorrect piece of music was downloaded and that you found the sound quality to be poor, a matter that we will raise with the crematorium .
  • 4 Sandra Clowes 12th Jun 2021

    Everything had to be done remotely because of covid and as I live 75 miles from Nottingham, but all your staff were kind, efficient and helpful, both making the arrangements beforehand and on the day itself.

  • 5 Julie Grant 6th Jun 2021

    I am really happy with the services from A W Lynn. All dealt with me compassionately and with great care at what was a very difficult time. Never having to have dealt with a funeral before Emma talked me through everything involved from registering the death, ensuring my mum was looked after at the funeral parlour, requirements for the cremation, choosing the Celebrant and sorting out the charity donations which we had instead of flowers. She was with me every step of the way and couldn't have been more caring and helpful. Mark, who looked after us at the service and the bearers were so good and very respectful. The Celebrant who was chosen for me was so kind and considerate and brilliant with my dad who was obviously in great distress at losing is wife of 62 years. All in all they made a dreadful day so much more bearable. Thank you.

    A.W. Lymn, Arnold Team replied
    Julie, thank you for such lovely words of feedback, it was an honour to look after you ensuring Mum received the final send-off she deserved and I am glad you felt supported all the way through the process. I knew Victoria would be the perfect choice to look after the service and help Dad say that last goodbye. Thank you, Emma.
  • 5 Karen Slater 5th Jun 2021

    Have used Lymns twice now. They treat you like you are the only one going through a bereavement. The service they give is outstanding.

    A.W. Lymn, Arnold Team replied
    I am so pleased that you felt the service was outstanding. I was only sorry I could not follow this through due to being on annual leave however I’m glad that Mark was able to look after you on the day. Thank you, Russ.
  • 5 Daniel Waplington 1st Jun 2021

    Great! All the arrangements were perfect and we had a surprisingly fun funeral, exactly what we wanted.

    A.W. Lymn, Arnold Team replied
    Dan, it was my pleasure to help you create the perfect fitting tribute for you Dad, even down to his bag of chip and final pint of beer that went on the funeral for him. Thank you, Emma.

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.
