From the outset, everybody at Albin's was excellent from Christine and Dawn at the Welling branch to the two guys who came to my house to collect Susan. They were courteous and respectful and treated my daughters and I very sympathetically. On the day of the funeral, I couldn't have asked for a better group of people, lead by Steve, to see us through the funeral service. They made the experience more bearable and handled every little detail, leaving us with the time we needed to pay our respects and grieve.

This was our second time using Albins. Christine at the Welling Branch was again supportive and helpful throughout, making the process as easy as it could be. Frpm time of taking Mum into their care to after the service Albins did a great job. On the day of the Funeral, Chris and the team were totally professional and did their bit calmly and respectfully - remarked positively on by guests. It all added to a good celebratory send off. Thanks all!

    To whom it may concern, On Friday 2nd August 2019 F A Albins done the funeral for my Late Girlfriend Tracey Neal, I wanted to email and say just how amazing your service is. From the start of engaging in your services Chris at your Welling office was compassionate, she was understanding of our needs and always accommodating to us, she even called me a few times just to see how I was doing, she at all times remained very professional, and made an extremely difficult time in my life so much easier. Even bringing Tracey down from castleford wasn’t too much trouble, I was told the guys that went to get Tracey left at 4am!! That’s a big deal for us as it meant we could all say goodbye at the chapel of rest so we are extremely grateful to them for doing that for us. To see Tracey before the cremation we had to go to Rotherhithe to your head office, I explained I’ve not seen her for nearly 3 weeks since she passed away and I’ve never been to a chapel of rest before, Scott took me down the hall we stopped outside and he explained what I should expect, we went into the lily chapel, (incidentally Lily’s were Tracey’s favourite flower so that was a nice touch) I walked over to Tracey and just started crying and Scott put his hand on my shoulder and comforted me and then gave all the time I needed to say goodbye to the love of my life. Also joanne and the girls on reception were just as amazing, we had a chat and joanne even found me a couple of phone numbers for child bereavement charity’s for the two younger children. On the day of the funeral George was responsible for us and Tracey’s funeral with his boys, I can’t remember their names, but they also were professional at at times, George kept us up to date with every step of the day, he was absolutely amazing with us, he even let  everybody for Tracey’s Funeral walk behind the hearse the last few yards to the chapel for her service as we didn’t follow in the cars to the crematorium, something we will be forever grateful for. Myself Tracey’s 2 sons and Tracey’s 3 brothers carried the coffin from the hearse into the chapel for the service, even taking 5-10mins to explain how we were to do it wasn’t too much trouble for George, after the service George even came to find me and said goodbye and wished me and the family well for the future. I really felt I should write in and say a MASSIVE THANK YOU from myself and my family for making an awful day so much nicer then it should be, we can never tell you all just how fantastic your staff are, words cannot say just how grateful we are for that. All the best for the future and best wishes ADRIAN MCLELLAN-COLE and FAMILY

    Albins treated us with the utmost respect, care and patience. Chris at the funeral directors, made the whole traumatic process easy for us to manage, by allowing to take the time we needed for each decision that had to made. I would recommend Albins to anyone, because the extra care and attention given to the whole process.

  • 5 Karen Moore 20th Jun 2019

    Just to say thanks to everyone involved for making the day so special for our Mum. It truly was a celebration and couldn’t have been a more fitting tribute. Chris is such a special person and her guidance at a really distressing time was invaluable. Father Michael is an absolute treasure and also may the day vibrant and uplifting... it felt as if he had known Mum and captured the essence of her perfectly...she would have loved him! John and the boys were so caring, respectful and patient...and as a family, can’t thank them enough for making the day memorable for all the right reasons. Will be forever grateful to everyone involved. Love from Karen Nicky and Terry x

    Christine welcomed us at the office in Welling way and led us through what we wanted in a calm fashion, only sold us what we needed and fixed things we wanted for Dad and us. The Team on the day were lovely and were especially great with our young ones. All went smoothly, without incident, what more could be asked for. Throughout, Dad was respected. Would we use again? Yes, definitely. But hopefully that won't be too soon!

  • 5 Diane Gillespie 8th Feb 2019

    Christine and the whole team were absolutely wonderful. From the very early morning when George and Terry arrived to look after our dad, the care and respect they showed to us and more importantly to dad was exceptional. This genuine care and concern was also applied after meeting Christine and Dawn in the Welling Branch. They listened to our concerns and advised where necessary, and made this extremely upsetting time a little more bearable. The attention to detail was unbelievable and we cannot thank them enough for their support. Although there are many people behind the scenes that we never met the family would like to thank you all very much in the professional way you looked after our dad. Special thankyou’s to Christine, Dawn George and Terry.

  • 5 Terri Looker 21st Jan 2019

    This is the second funeral we have used Albins for and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend.  They are professional, compassionate and spend time with you to ensure they provide the service you want. They go the extra mile to ensure everything runs as smooth as possible. I cannot thank them enough 

  • 5 Anna Baron 19th Jan 2019

    Christine and Dawn at F Albins in Welling are so very kind and helpful. We as a family have had three family members pass away in 2018 and they managed the whole process with patience, thoughtfulness and compassion and we felt completely comfortable despite it being a deeply sad and awful time. They took away all the worry and concerns for every member of the family and we cannot thank them enough. The pallbearers were totally respectful from the time they left the funeral parlour, throughout the service and after everything had concluded. If you want total peace of mind that you are putting your loved one to rest respectfully with the best send off ever, then you should with out a doubt choose Albins.

  • 5 Lee Bunce 8th Jan 2019

    There isn’t enough words to say thank you to Christine, Dawn and Steven Bailey for all the help on giving the service to my Dad, your care for my Dad was second to none, and I will be always thankful for all you have done.  Thank you to Christine And Dawn especially for looking after me when I was tearful and sitting with me. I know Barry would be very proud of you all.  The job you do is amazing, so much so if there was anyway of giving something back I would. There way you looked after me, and my brother the day he died and looking a mess, I will always be thankful. I will be forever thankful I met you all.  Love  Natalie
