Thank you your professionalism .care and kindness has been outstanding through what has been the most difficult time of my life a special thank you to Ellie and Nigel.

Steve Elvin 7th Sep 2020

Mum’s funeral was arranged at short notice in uncertain times. Throughout, Ellie who organised things for us was friendly and understanding whilst very efficient. She coped well with our several changes of plan.  The Team on the day we’re brilliant and really helped us through our sad times.

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.

    Thank you your professionalism .care and kindness has been outstanding through what has been the most difficult time of my life a special thank you to Ellie and Nigel.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    I was saddened and shocked to hear of Geoffrey’s death but honoured that you, Susan, elected to use the services of our family company. I am sorry that the Covid19 restrictions limited the number that could be in St Swithun’s church and as such many did not hear the lovely service and in particular the fabulous eulogy. I am pleased that the services provided by our family company, and Ellie and I, proved helpful at this so difficult time. Thank you for the kind review

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Geri, Susan and family. Thank you for your kind words, they truly are appreciated, but it was the very least Nigel, the team at Arnold and I could do for Sheila and your family. If we can help in any other way, please do not hesitate to contact one of us.

  • 4 Kim Skelton 8th Jun 2020

    Due to the current circumstances with COVID-19, we were not allowed more than 15 family members to attend my father's funeral. But this was no fault of theirs as there is only so much they can do under the current restrictions. Everybody I have spoken to at A.W Lymns of Arnold have been very sympathetic and very professional in their manner. All of the arrangements had to be done by telephone or email but Ellie was always available to offer her support and understanding. The tribute read by Keith Brown got my father just right, everyone has said how wonderful it was and how they believed that Keith himself knew my father. Thank you so much for your excellent service you provided to me and my family.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this kind and balanced review of the limited service we were able to provide as a result of the measure implemented by Government. We are glad that desipte this Ellie was always available to offer support and understanding, and that all the team at Arnold were professional and sympathetic. 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.
