  • 5 Barry Kim Trayler 5th Feb 2020

    Excellent in every way from start to finish !! Nothing is too much trouble . When it’s a time like this when you have lost a loved one you need compassion and professionalism. This company has it all even the extra little touches like leaving a rose on the door as we left for the crematorium.  Most if all they are very respectful in every way to the one you have lost. Micheal was outstanding and John and his team just immaculate, caring compassionate and very respectful in every way . I could go on for ages about how good they are !!! I wouldn’t let my loved ones be in anybody else’s hands . I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family and have done in the past . Plus we had Father Micheal who was amazing and Katie to do the flowers truly made the day special all of you x

    Mickey showed us all compassion during a very emotional time for the family. His advice was invaluable when arranging the funeral for my late husband. On the day of the funeral the pallbearers were very respectful, thank you Danny for all the support you gave us and the assistance you gave my son and son in laws when they carried the coffin into the crematorium. All the Albins staff showed emotional strength which was crucial to us during a very difficult time.

  • 5 Glenis Ann Aylott 1st Jul 2018

    I would not consider using anyone else except Albins, their professionalism, empathy and kindness to all concerned is truly amazing.  Despite all the sadness a funeral brings Albins somehow makes it bearable and thankful at the same time.  The attention to detail for all their funerals is second to none.  Thank you all staff for being so kind and understanding. Glenis xx

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.
