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.

    Excellent service, well conducted and handled with care. The only thing I would say is that crematorium slot was a little tight but that is no fault of the funeral dorectors. I would recommend A.W.Lymns fully.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

  • 5 Tony Hudson 22nd Jan 2021

    Absolutely seamless and compassionate throughout much appreciated in a very difficult time thank you all so much

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Tony. Thank you for the outstanding appraisal of our family firm which is much appreciated. It was particularly sad for me to oversee Julie-Anne’s funeral having known you for many years. The number of people lining the streets in both Woodborough and Lambley was an outstanding accolade to the respect and love that was held for her and was a beautiful and poignant way to mark her life by those unable to attend the funeral during the current pandemic restrictions. You must be so very proud of her. Nigel
  • 5 Lynn Bradley 16th Jan 2021

    All staff I spoke to were very polite and kind. They were very patient and guided me through the process step by step. It was a difficult time yet I felt able to ring with questions. The day of the service everything went well. I can't thank the staff enough for making the process as easy as possible.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are glad the team at Arnold offered great support during this difficult time, always being on hand to answer any questions and adjust any arrangements, and we are pleased that the service went well. Thank you.

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.
