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.

    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

    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.

  • 5 Daylene Soar 16th Nov 2020

    I really am 100% satisfied with A W LYMNS at Arnold, They took me through every step of the way with great compassion and empathy,I was next of kin for my sister, and as we are on lock down, during COVID 19, it was made more difficult to deal with everything over the phone, and no direct meeting with anyone, till the day I went to the chapel of rest to say my goodbyes to my sister, that I met, Ellie Nightingale in person, who had dealt with me,to organise the funeral, and was able to really thank her for helping me through a very sad time, she was very welcoming, and friendly, she made my visit to the chapel of rest, more at ease and guided me through it so well, then at the funeral the next day, the undertakers and bearers that were there from Lymns! We’re really discreet, they were well planned as to how the funeral would be, but stayed in the background, while being on hand to oversee everything, while the service was conducted, it was everything I hoped her funeral would be and more, so professional and caring, I can not thank them all enough, for helping me through an exceedingly hard time in my life, it was made as stress free as they possibly could make it, our family have used A W Lymns since the early 1980s, for family funerals, I feel that speaks volumes for them, I would highly recommend them, 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this kind and detailed review of our team in Arnold. I know that the COVID restrictions have made the process of arranging a funeral even more difficult for the families we look after and so I am really pleased to see that the support we were able to give was of such great benefit to you, especially the great comfort you felt after visiting the Chapel of Rest. Thank you, Ellie.

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.
