On such a sad day Albins took over every worry we could of possibly had. They showed the utmost respect and care, to my Mum and every member of my family. If a funeral could be perfect, my Mum's was, because of all the staff at Albins. We can't thank you enough.

Jenny Rowcliffe 21st Dec 2019

We cannot begin to express our thanks for the most amazing funeral and service Albins organised and presented. From Neil in the Mottingham office to all the staff on the day of the funeral. Recommendations for Julie Powell the celebrant and Tanya the florist.  Everything was absolutely perfect. And beyond all expectations. Exceedingly professional, smart, respectful, 5 star service.  Every single detail was perfect.   Neil put us at ease and nothing was too much trouble. We were so grateful to Albins for the service they gave.  Mum and Dad would have been blown away and so so proud.  Thank you for making a terrible time so easy and something we can look back on with pride.  Thank you Jenny and Wendy.

I would highly recommend Albin's. My dad's arrangements were made with great care and attention to detail. Our family were fully supported and always shown kindness and compassion at this difficult time.

    All the staff at F A Albin, Mottingham are the most caring, sympathic and professional people. At such a sad time of the passing of my father; it was comforting to know that they were there for me! On the day of his funeral with the help of F.A Albin, Mottingham, our family paid our love and respect to him. As l wanted too. I can not thank them enough.

  • 5 Mark Brookes 24th May 2019

    We cannot thank Albins enough everything was done with dignity and kindness

  • 5 Julie Slater 19th May 2019

    Danny and his colleagues looked after us impeccably on the day and all the subtle extra touches that they carried out were all very much appreciated by us. Dad was treated with the utmost respect at all times on the day and we have no doubt that he was very well cared for the whole time he was in FA Albin's care.

  • 5 Sarah Thurlow 18th May 2019

    Thoughtful and supportive staff as well as experienced. Smoothly run funeral. 

  • 5 Geri Thrift 4th May 2019

    Can not speak too highly of all at Albins, they handled my beloved Dads funeral so professionally and with such warmth and understanding, lots of our friends commented on them. A very big thank you to Neil, Dawn and Steve, and all the team.

  • 5 Michael Norris 4th Mar 2019

    Albums did a very professional service

  • 5 Donna Gray 18th Feb 2019

    From when we arranged mum's funeral we were really looked after. On the actual day, Steve the Conductor and his colleagues looked after mum and us very well. They were respectful throughout the day and couldn't do enough for us. This made the whole day a lot easier to cope with. Thank you to Neil, Steve and the rest of the guys who looked after us.

  • 5 Michelle Jenkins 3rd Feb 2019

    Cannot thank F A Albin enough for the service they provided for my sisters funeral held on the 30th January 2019.  As a family we have sadly had to organise 3 funerals within 2 years. They have always shown complete respect and compassion at all times. Each and everyone of the staff involved have been amazing. We would especially like to thank Neil who was always available to help and guide with any concerns or questions we may have had, showing genuine kindness throughout.

  • 5 Jane Adams 17th Oct 2018

    Absolutely seamless, would definitely recommend, all the staff were fantastic.

  • 5 Marion Cox 11th Sep 2018

    A Big thankyou to everyone at F A Albin everybody was so kind and caring from the start to the end you made a heart breaking situation seem a lot easier to manage. A Big thanks once again.

  • 5 Ian Stevens 9th Sep 2018

    Consummate professionals.  Every consideration given to me and my family. Kind, understanding and thoughtful.  Attention given to every little detail. I cannot praise each member of their team enough. Sadly we experienced a national company in March that were completely the opposite. The other hyphenated company allowed my Father in Law's funeral arrangements to drag out for six weeks and made no effort to help bring closure any quicker. I would highly recommend FA Albin's.  Thank you. Ian Stevens.

  • 5 Patrick Bridges 9th Jul 2018

    We can only describe our experience of FA ALBIN & SON as absolutely First Class. Neil Gamble at the Mottingham branch was extremely helpful from the first moment after we made our initial contact right up until the day of the funeral. We can’t speak highly enough and would recommend to anyone. Many thanks indeed. The Bridges Family

  • 5 Sheila Brooks 16th May 2018

    Albin's was recommended to me by a friend, and I am so pleased they did. We cannot fault the service and attention that was afforded to us by them. Right from the time that they came to take my husband away from my home, the meetings with Neil at the Mottingham office, and on the day of my husband's funeral, their attention to detail and understanding was exceptional. Many of the mourners commented on how wonderful they were. I cannot recommend this company more highly. Thank you from my son and I, our family, for making a sad occasion so wonderful to the memory of my husband. Sheila Brooks.

  • 5 Natalie Blake 27th Apr 2018

    We could not have been taken better care of as a family, on the day everyone was fantastic, but Lee in particular took really good care of Mum and I. We intitially made all our arrangements with Jo, who was covering at the Mottingham branch, and she was amazing. Her professional, yet warm manor made the whole experience much more bearable. As a family we’ve used Albins for years and years, and will continue to do so.

  • 5 Zoe Hughes 25th Apr 2018

    Outstanding the best there is thank you so much.  Kind regards Zoe& Manne 

  • 5 Chris Bird 21st Apr 2018

    I can not thank all the staff at Albins enough and most of all Paul Rutherford what a credit to Albins. Chris bird

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. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

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.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
