    My expectations of the service from Albins is high in the first place, they have been our family's choice for a long time, I've grown up seeing Albins in Bermondsey. My Mum passed away suddenly in 1999 , I was only 29 & it was mostly down to me to arange everything, Albins took care of everything, I cannot remember much of that time but I knew I was taken Care of. In July of this year my Dad passed away after a long battle with dementia & then a short illness in hospital, his passing was a blessing as his & our suffering was too much to bear. Sidcup is my local Albins now & I contacted them & spoke to Micheal Thorpe the manager, he gave us guidance & help from then on. The staff have the highest respect for the family & most importantly the deceased as after all it's their day.  I can only say that they gave my Dad the best & cannot fault the service from Albins, everyone was superb, in particular Mr Micheal Thorpe, I would say he is an asset to your company, but you only have the best so that's why he's with you, so he is an asset to your industy. Touches that stand FA Albins apart from others, as my Dad drove past the sidcup branch the staff came out & payed their respects to him, a simple gesture that swells my heart & my eyes with tears. That's the Albins way. Nothing is too much. I could have asked Micheal for a unicorn drawn carriage with John Wayne riding shotgun, it would never happen, but he would *** well tried  to do it.! & then got something just like it:) Sacha Ansell read my Dads eulogy & with her help & advise we put together a perfect service, her delivery was warm & humorous delivered with a simplicity which comes from the heart. I again thank every one at Albins. This level of service is only achieved by a team at the pinnacle of their business. With years of experience & the very best of people guiding them, my upmost respects to the Albins family & in particular Barry, RIP a dear friend to many, a true gentleman. X

  • 5 Sharon Marchant 26th Apr 2017

    When losing a loved one, the preparations afterwards tend to become quite precarious. Michael Thorpe provided the perfect balance of professionalism and compassion when dealing with our needs. A very courteous company, that retain humanity within their delivery - this is one company that I would definitely recommend repeatedly. We received impeccable service all the way through and were touched by the sincerity of the staff and owners. Thank you. 

  • 5 Alexis Formella 17th Apr 2017

  • 5 Derek William Shepherd 21st Mar 2017

    From start to finish we were looked after like family by Mickey at the Sidcup branch. Nothing was too much trouble, he knew exactly how to handle us following such a sudden & unexpected death of our wife and mother.  Mickey has become our friend, he took great care of Mum and helped us to give her a fantastic send off. Highly recommend Mickey & all the team at Albins. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  The Shepherd family

  • 5 Josie Mehmet 18th Mar 2017

    All the staff at Albins acted in a very professional manner and treated dad and the family with nothing but respect. They made dad look so well and young in the coffin it made us feel at ease. So pleased that we used them again as they did the same with mum almost 7 years ago. I would highly recommend them. Keep up the good work.

  • 5 Phil Cox 14th Dec 2016

    I cannot thank you enough for the support and excellent service we were given, my Father passed away quite suddenly recently and we used F.A. Albin Funeral Directors in Sidcup. Initial conversation with Michael was pleasant, myself and my family were asked to meet him at Sidcup Branch, it was a very calming atmosphere, professional and he made us feel very relaxed, Michael at Albin made planning and arranging the whole funeral very easy which eased the pain we were going through. This was due to the support and service they have provided. On the day of the funeral the cars arrived on time and a special thank you Lee and Steve and the other guys for the respect and courtesy they showed throughout the day to our family and friends. It was a proper Old Skool Funeral and send off for my Father so thank you for the support all at F.A Albin Sidcup. BR Phil Cox

What are disbursements?
