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.

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 

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.

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.

    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.

  • 5 Lucinda Cox 27th Jun 2016

    We feel that the funeral director A.W. Lymn Arnold was outstanding when dealing with the funeral of John Arthur Horsley. Ellie was so professional and explained everything clearly and in detail. Ellie answered all our questions and was always available to chat through any queries we had in person or on the telephone. She guided us through an extremely difficult time and was caring and patient. Ross was also extremely professional and thoughtful on the day of the funeral.The celebrant Keith Brown was second to none and he delivered the service with compassion, honesty and impeccable professionalism. We highly recommend this funeral company and can't thank them enough for an excellent and wonderful send off for our loved one.

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.
