  • 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

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.

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.
