  • 5 Denise Heron 29th Sep 2023

    I would to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Albins at Crayford, for the care, compassion, and professionalism you demonstrated while looking after my lovely dad, John Hurst. The passing of a loved one is never easy, and your support throughout this difficult time has been a huge comfort for my family and me.

    The way you handled all the arrangements with such meticulous attention to detail gave us one less thing to worry about. It was clear that you all approach your roles with a deep sense of respect for both the living and the departed. Your sensitivity and understanding allowed us to grieve in our own way, while you ensured that all aspects of the ceremony and service were conducted seamlessly. I would also like to pass on big thank you’s to Jo Branch, Steve Bayley, Paul Rutherford, David Spalding and the two other lovely Albin’s staff (apologies for not knowing your names) who were Bearers for my lovely dad.

    I would also like to commend the warm and comforting atmosphere of Albins, Crayford, in particular Jo and Steve. The Chapel of Rest was a lovely room where we could visit dad everyday and nothing was too much trouble and we were always greeted with a friendly smile and words of comfort.

    Lastly, thank you for taking the time to answer all our questions and concerns. Your patience and guidance made it easier for us to make informed decisions during a time when our emotions often clouded our judgment.

    It takes special people to help and support grieving families while ensuring that their loved ones are given a dignified farewell. I deeply appreciate everything you've done for us. My family and I will forever be grateful for the kindness and care you extended during our time of need.

  • 5 Sharon Daly 18th Sep 2023

    Very professional, helpful, respectful, and full of compassion and empathy. I trusted them fully to care for my mum and her funeral and they did not let me down. Joanne was so helpful to make sure everything was perfect. Steve our funeral conductor on the day was fantastic and so kind along with the rest of the team. They make a very sad and difficult day easier to cope with. Thank you. xx

  • 5 Paul McBarron 15th Sep 2023

    My Mum passed away in July and due to outside factors, the funeral did not take place until September. Steve, Jo and the whole team were fantastic during the whole process. They went through everything in detail, they maintained contact throughout the waiting period. They were always at the end of the phone to offer help and advice if needed. On the day of the funeral they arrived in plenty of time before we had to leave. There were some lovely touches. Steve laid a flower on my mum’s porch. While passing the branch in Sidcup, a member of staff stood outside and paid her respects as we passed. On arrival at Kemnal park, Steve also paid his respects to my sister, who is laid there, by placing a flower on her plot. The whole family had nothing but praise for them. We cannot thank the whole team enough for making a very emotional day run smoothly and give Mum the best goodbye that we could.

  • 5 Amy Bohan 15th Aug 2023

    First class service - Angels in disguise. I cannot thank Jo at Crayford enough along with Steve and the other lads on the actual day - Words are not enough!! T H A N K  Y O U!! 

  • 5 Ruth Wicks 4th Aug 2023

    From the moment I spoke to Joanne at Albins Crayford I knew that my Dad was in good hands, he would be looked after and his funeral would be exactly as it should be.

    The support and guidance I received from Joanne was second to none, I didn’t have to worry about a single thing! The respect shown to my Dad was exceptional both before and on the day of his funeral.

    The whole experience, start to finish, made what was a really difficult time that much easier to navigate and deal with. I can't thank or recommend the Albin's Team enough.

  • 5 Jane Rumsey 15th Jul 2023

    Jo at the Crayford office was kind and always on hand to answer any queries and made the difficult experience worry free. George, who brought my mum to the chapel was so kind and professional also. I couldn’t have wished for a better company to handle my mum’s funeral. Highly recommend 10/10.

  • 5 Karen Kane 4th Jul 2023

    Absolutely first class service. Their package, which includes online obituaries and photo slideshow accompanied by music, during the service all went to make the funeral very personal and precious time. Also the little touches water and tissues in the cars. Everything has been thought through very well. Highly recommended.
