We used their Welling branch and Christine was very attentive.  On the day, Steve was very professional, helpful and made the lead up to the ceremony stressless. As a family we would highly recommend FAAlbin to organise your loved ones final journey. 

Stephen Mistretta 5th Apr 2021

Absolutely impeccable service from the moment they took my dear mum from home to the funeral service itself. The support provided was exemplary from all the team at Albins. Chris, Dawn and George are a credit to the company and are gentle and kind. Outstanding service. Thank you.

Ian Palmer 8th Mar 2021

Chris at the Welling branch was very knowledgeable and helpful. All the staff that I dealt with were top notch. The over all cost was also much less than anticipated. Thanks to them all in this difficult period.

    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

    We are so pleased that we chose Albin's (Welling) at what was a very traumatic time for all the family. Chris (Manager) talked us through each stage of the process with kindness, compassion and professionalism. Nothing was too much trouble for her. Everything went smoothly from beginning to end and was entirely stress free thanks to Chris and her team. There is nothing more we can say except, "Thank you so much Chris. We will never forget the help and support that you gave us".

    I have used other undertakers when my parents died but I can honestly say that FA Albins is in a different league. They are true professionals who made a very difficult day much easier (especially with all the restrictions that are in place with Covid 19).I would like to thank the all team at Welling for all the kindness and respect that they showed my husband and family.

  • 5 Paul Montgomery 16th May 2020

    Thank-you so much for looking after my Mothers funerals. Even though I couldn't be there during the lockdown, I was informed by other members of my family how good the people were on the day and doing those extra things that just made the funeral. Particular comment from the family was the stop outside the Church and placing of a flower, as very special moment that the family really appreciated. Special thanks to Christine at the Welling office for her all help.

  • 5 Derian Keyms 30th Apr 2020

    We used Albins because they were so professional, kind and respectful when acting for the coroner. So we chose them to direct my father's funeral. We couldn't fault them in any way - we have nothing but praise for how they handled everything particularly their sensitivity for difficulties arising out of the Coronavirus restrictions. We would like to extend our thanks to all of the people that helped us, but especially to Paul Rutherford who very kindly came and helped us again even though he had his own sorrows at the time.

  • 5 Clare Wand 25th Apr 2020

    The professionalism of the team was second to none we were so impressed. The whole experience of dealing with Albins was an absolute pleasure despite the difficult circumstances.

  • 5 Paul Stevens 13th Apr 2020

    Despite the circumstances we were faced with, Albins performed the service with professionalism. Even the nice touch of driving past their shop to see staff bow when the hearse drove past was touching . Thanks to Chris for making things easy to understand and helping us through the weeks leading up to dad's service.Thank you all for treating my dad with dignity on what was a sad day for the family. Thanks again Paul Stevens
