At such a sad time for me I cannot express too strongly how grateful I was to Elly and Beryl for their efficency and warmth to me. I know it is their job but I felt caring for me was sincere and genuine.

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 Ellie Nightingale, from Calverton, who gained her Diploma in Funeral Directing in 2017. Beryl Spencer is the receptionist and administrator.

Our Arnold branch is the only independent funeral directors in town. The building 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, Ellie 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.

    From start to finish a very professional service was given. Wonderful organising skills that took the worry out of making the funeral arrangements. Everything was explained in great detail.

    A. W. Lymn - Arnold - Nottingham. The staff who we spoke with, mainly Ellie Carr and Beryl were excellent and took every care to ensure the sad occasion of my fathers funeral ran smoothly and efficiently. Similarly on the day of the funeral the representatives from A. W. Lymn were also very efficient, yet extremely personable. As I am sure anyone reading this review would also be interested in pricing, then having done some prior research we found their charges fair and competitive. They simply took care of everything. Would highly recommend.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

  • 5 Laura Syson 17th Apr 2018

    The service provided by A W Lymn at a very distressing time was absolutely superb. Every stage from the initial meeting with Richard (on call from the Beeston office), the administrative arrangements made by Ellie and Beryl (at the Arnold office), through to the drivers and pallbearers on the day of the funeral was handled in an extremely professional and emphatic manner. A special thanks to Nigel Lymn Rose for his support and understanding on a most difficult day.

  • 5 Patricia Storey 15th Apr 2018

    At a time when your brain is scrambled and you can't think straight, Ellie at Lymn's in Arnold made everything very easy.   She didn't rush any decisions and explained everything sympathetically and knowledgeably.   I thank her for that. Also want to mention the two drivers of our funeral cars who couldn't have been nicer to us.  Kind and very respectful they are certainly an asset to A J Lymn.  Unfortunately do not have their names. Pat Storey

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased that Ellie's sympathetic and knowledgeable service helped guide you through this confusing and difficult time, and I will ensure that both Mark and David also see the kind words you have written about them. Thank you.

  • 5 Brenda Barrett 3rd Apr 2018

    My family have been comforted by the excellent service A.W.Lymn have so patiently provided.   We felt our beloved mother was treated with the utmost respect, during a very difficult time.  Patience and a professional approach worked very well for us all round.  Our requests have been met to the full.  Thank you to all the staff at Arnold Branch and the City Branch for your attention to detail.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

  • 5 Andy Torr 3rd Apr 2018

    Sensitive and empathetic guidance throughout the booking and arrangements process, and in dealing with any subsequent queries I had prior to the funeral itself. All aspects of the funeral were handled with discreet professionalism, both by the Lymns team themselves and by the excellent civil celebrant, Keith Brown, who they had recommended to me and who went to immense trouble both before and on the day to provide a lovely farewell for Mum that could have not have been more fitting for her, or indeed for myself. Sincere thanks to everyone involved. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased that the team at Arnold offered sensitive and empathetic guidance throughout the arrangement process and would thank you for your high appraisal of the service provided by them and Keith Brown. Thank you.
  • 5 Deanne Taylor 6th Mar 2018

  • 5 Stephen Carnall 2nd Mar 2018

    A difficult time for the family was made so much easier by Lymn's helpful professional and above all understanding service. Ellie in the office was polite considerate and helpful at all times and explained things to me in a clear and concise manner. On the day of the funeral all the staff who comprised the cortege were excellent both in what they said and the manner in which they conducted themselves. Ian our driver was the perfect mixture of compassion and understanding but I must single Mark out for particular commendation. Everything about him from what he said to the way he said it to the way he conducted and presented himself was perfectly judged and he put my brother and myself at complete ease. We cannot thank him enough.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this kind and detailed review, particularly in regard to the professional and understanding care offered by Ellie and Mark. We are glad that Mark was able to put you and your brother at ease on the day of the funeral and that his support made this sad day a little easier for you. Thank you.
  • 5 Andrew Sutcliffe 26th Feb 2018

    Just wanted to say a big thank-you for an excellent job arranging my Mum's service of celebration yesterday, in particular Ellie for all the arrangements, and Rebecca White for conducting a beautiful service.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for these lovely words, we are pleased Ellie and Rebecca helped you create a fitting celebration for your Mum and that everything went well on the day for you.
  • 5 Andrew Hefford 25th Feb 2018

    Ellie and Beryl who dealt with my Fathers cremation were fantastic from the start to the finish in organising everything. Mark the main pallbearer (forgive if not correct title) was absolutely brilliant in informing us what was going to happen and with a smile, not a laughing smile, but a genuine smile that was from within.. All in all, everything was perfect as it was when AW Lymns carried out my Mother’s cremation 3 years ago. Many thanks to you all.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased that you received excellent service from both Ellie and Beryl beforehand and that Mark's genuine smile and support & guidance on the days itself offered comfort to you and your family. 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.

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.
