I cannot thank the Albin’s team enough for their compassion and sensitivity. The entire team from office to the day itself conducted themselves with such professionalism that I cannot express the gratitude my sister and I feel for making a difficult day as easy as it could possibly be.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I would recommend Albin’s without hesitation. Amanda & Andrea 

Wendy Baker 4th Oct 2021

Chris and Dawn cared for us at the Welling Branch and Steve and his team looked after us on the day. They were all extremely professional and at the same time very kind and anticipated everything we might need. They made everything so easy and kept us informed of progress as things went along and I took great comfort knowing that F A Albin were looking after my dear mother.

    We were really impressed with Albins start to finish and they've helped us plan a fine funeral day for my beloved Mum. The team at Welling were always excellent with Chris overseeing things and the funeral conductor on the day attentive ensuring that it delivered on just what we and the guests wanted. I would not hesitate to recommend.

    Outstanding service, nothing was too much trouble and would definitely recommend. Christine and Steve went above and behind for us as a family. And Darren Pruce was amazing, my nan would have been so very proud of him for being so professional and strong for all our family.

  • 5 Hayley Turner-Dobbin 31st May 2021

    FA Albins were wonderful from start to finish they spoke to my mum to help he plan her funeral and didn't push any extras but listened to what she wanted. On her passing they were professional and compassionate. They made organising the day effortless and the personal touches they added were beautiful including Christine standing outside Albins as the cars drove passed and paid her respects ... George and the team on the day didn't rush us and couldn't do more for us. 100% would recommend.

  • 5 John M. Burgess 22nd Dec 2020

    From the very first phone call through to the day of the funeral itself, the staff at Albin's have been wonderful. Their professionalism and care was a great comfort for all of the family at a very difficult time. They are a class act and I can't thank them enough.

  • 5 Paul Warren 15th Dec 2020

    The whole experience of losing my Mum was extremely traumatic. However the warmth, kindness and support that we as a family received from Albin's was exemplary. From start to finish we were looked after and supported from booking in, to our many visits to see Mum. On the day of the funeral I would like to make a personal thank you to Danny who said he would be looking after us on the day and more than lived up to that. However. our biggest thanks go to Christine and Dawn from the Welling office who were absolutely unbelievable and without whom we would never have been able to manage. They both went above and beyond to make a terrible situation bearable for us and I really cannot thank them enough. They will be forever in our thoughts. Paul Warren

    For anyone that has the heart breaking task of choosing a funeral directors services. I can honestly say look no further. From my very first encounter with Albin's through to the day of the service and even in the weeks that passed after, their team have been amazing. This isn't just a job and a service they provide, they genuinely care and guide you through the process of one of the hardest things you will ever have to do. My gratitude and thanks to the team can never be replicated in words that truly convey how much I appreciated and relied on them. Thank you so much. You are all amazing. Maxine Gridley
