Jon Jane mickey and all the team look after us so well while arranging the funeral of my mum. Nothing was too much trouble and they guided us through the whole process with so much compassion and dignity.  They gave me complete confidence in ensuring every last detail was remembered.  Everything they did was to the highest level possible while maintaining  warmth and genuine care.  Thank you xx

  • 5 Jenny Johnson 23rd Jan 2023

    It is with great pleasure to say that myself, family and friends, rate F.A. Albin of Sidcup as the best of all Funeral Directors to go to, for looking after a departed loved one and the following funeral. The attention and comfort they give to the breaved family members is superb, as is the care of the departed loved one. Our latest loss was of our beloved Mother, Della Patricia Fraser. When we visited her, so carefully had she been looked after, it was as though she was just sleeping peacefully. We have always found the people who work at F.A. Albin to be so caring and helpful at a time of great grief. The church service was excellent, giving our Mother a wonderful send off. Without a doubt, we would always recommend F.A. Albin as the best of funeral directors to go to, for the care of a departed loved one and their family. Jennifer Johnson and Family

  • 5 Rachel Bartlett 17th Jan 2023

    From the minute Dad was collected from home to when they drove us to the wake on the day of the funeral Albin's have been the most professional, caring and helpful funeral directors. In particular Mickey Thorpe, Sidcup branch manager, who guided us through the entire process. We are forever in debt to him and his boys fof the respect and love they showed Dad and our family.

  • 5 Jane Rankin 9th Dec 2022

    Excellent. Very helpful from start to finish. Great service.

  • 5 sandra Linda Lee 9th Dec 2022

    John, Jane and the guys are just amazing.  At such a painful time they help with so much and do everything they can to help.  They do not provide a service they provide friendship, guidance, help, support, advice, comfort and kindness.  We really do not know what we would have done without them. They are very special to us.

  • 5 June Marie Barratt 27th Nov 2022

    I can honestly say every person we spoke to when going into albins Sidcup was so professional they made the whole process so much easier . 

  • 5 Jeremy Lambe 24th Oct 2022

    Organsing a Funeral was unknown territory for us; however as soon as we picked up the phone and walked through the Door; Mickey and all of his associates guided us impecably through the entire process. From start to finish, every detail was intelligible; every procedure was precise. Subsequently the Day itself reflected Albins absolute professionalism and was wonderful.

  • 5 Shannon Winter 13th Sep 2022

    Albins did the most incredible job in looking after our beautiful mum and wife, as well as us as a family. Their love, support and comfort towards us will never be forgotten and we will forever be so grateful for them. 
    The funeral from the minute they arrived went perfectly and was so professional, yet with comfort and laughs between the family and albins. 
    Thank you for everything.
