We can’t begin to thank F.A Albins Sidcup enough for their  unbelievable service. They helped us so much with our son Ronnie’s service we will forever be in debt to them. The love and care and level of professionalism that goes into their work is out of this world, we’ve made friends for life. Thank you so much.

  • 5 Sam Smith 22nd Mar 2021

    F.A.Albin Sidcup did my dads funeral 5 years ago and more recently my mums. They made the whole process of both funerals from start to finish much easier, they are compassionate and professional at all times. I would like to especially mention Mickey, Jane and Jon who all went above and beyond and made the lead up to the funeral and the day itself not just about grieving but so special too. I cannot thank & recommend them enough.

  • 5 Ronnie Westpfel 13th Mar 2021

    Exceptional sympathetic service. You get what you pay for. Thank you Mickey

  • 5 Lucy Burton 9th Mar 2021

    I didn't realise a funeral could be such a beautiful affair. Not a single thing could have been better. Mum was looked after like family and I was welcomed, supported and advised daily. Mickey and Jane are two of the most sincere people and leaving a loved one in their care felt so natural. From the embalming to the Chapel, the hearse to the limousines, the attire of the staff to the to the arrangement of the service.....everything was done with pride, decorum and a sprinkle of South London that cannot be replicated. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart. Lucy x

  • 5 Sharon Shrigley 15th Jan 2021

    At a difficult time, it is always useful to have people who are sympathetic, professional & understand your wishes. This is particularly relevant during the covid pandemic. The whole Albin's team were exceptional, from the time we met with Mickey at the funeral parlour, to plan the funeral, until the day of the funeral, when Jon and his team ensured that everything went without a hitch. I would have no qualms in recommending the services of this company to deal with your loved one.

Frequently Asked Questions
