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 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.

  • 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.

  • 5 Chrstine Towers 5th Nov 2016

    Over the last four years, AW Lymn have taken very good care of four family members.  The funeral of each loved one has been beautifully and respectfully  performed with great dignity. I had great support and kindness, not to mention exceptional patience from everyone,most especially Beryl. I would have no hesitation, in recommending the team at Lymns at such a very difficult time. C.M.Towers

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Mrs Tower, We are very sorry to hear that it has been necessary for you to require our services four times over the past four years. We would however like to thank you for your very kind words, in particular your special mention of Beryl, and for your recommendation in the future.
  • 5 Lisa Smal 21st Oct 2016

    I can not thank Russell enough - we had 2 days to arrange my mothers fhneral and nothing was too much trouble.  Thank you very much for making such a difficult time far easier  Lisa 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Lisa, I am pleased to hear the Russell was able to look after you so well particularly given the tight timescale for completing the arrangements. Thank you.
  • 5 Joanne Blake 21st Oct 2016

    No other choice of funer directors for me, all the staff are caring and sensitive to your needs and could not be more helpful at a very difficult time.  We have used them twice in the past 18 months and can't find a fault with anything.  The staff make you feel like friends rather than clients without any awkward moments.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I am sorry that it has been necessary for you to need our services twice over the last 18 months but would like to thank you for your kind words about the staff at our Arnold office, and I am pleased that they were able to look after you so well.

  • 5 Phyliss Plowright 6th Oct 2016

    My Father's funeral was organised by Russell at the Arnold branch and everything from the day my Dad died to the funeral was handled in the most sympathetic and professional way. All aspects of the funeral and all our requests were met to the highest standards and Russell and his colleagues helped us celebrate my Father's life. Thankyou Steve Plowright.

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.
