Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do when someone dies?

When someone dies you need to get a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death from a doctor, register their death and choose a funeral director to arrange their funeral. The Registration Office will give you a Death Certificate and Certificate for Burial or Cremation (GR021 in Northern Ireland).

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.

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

Caring and professional from the outset

Jennifer Thomas 5 hours ago

We were met with very tragic circumstances surrounding the death our dad, and loving husband to our Mum, during this time of inconceivable grief and suffering somehow Albin’s with their compassionate approach and care for my mum, the family and my late dad made things a lot easier on the family. Denise Creed in particular based at the Mottingham branch was just the tonic we needed. Despite our sadness she made this a very happy journey for us all. Denise and the team made everything possible even allowed us to be able to hold our dads hand with dignity despite the length of time because of the circumstance, when I am sure most Funeral Directors would have said no, Albin’s said yes, we will make it possible, they were constantly guided by want the family wanted and needed. The way they treated all the family and my dad with so much respect and dignity really moved us to tears. There was very little for us to do, Albin’s took care of everything you can just tell they respond to everyone individually. The service and my Dad’s day was made fit for a King our King Arthur, To Albin’s and the Team we would never forget your kindness and compassion see you at the memorial Gardens on the 1st, as this is not the end this is only the beginning, Love Annette, Jennifer, Karen, Lisa, Claire, Danielle, Ajay, Amelia, Giovanni and Colin a huge thank you and an even bigger thank you from Arthur.
