    I really cannot say enough to express how wonderful Denise and all the staff at Albins have been . My dad was treated with the utmost care and respect whilst in the capable hands of the Albin team. Nothing was too much trouble and everything  was organised by them down to the last detail. My dads send off went so smoothly and they really thought of everything , even down to providing water and tissues in the cars and at the crematorium. The service they provide is second to none and very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend Albins to anyone , thank you so much for making my dads send off so beautiful . X

    I cannot express how wonderful Albins were from the start and all through the build up to the funeral of my husband. Denise was so helpful with the process and on the day Jamie the conductor was so very kind and respectful. The other guys were so too. I could not have asked for more.

  • 5 Natalie Gayle 5th Apr 2021

    Albins were very professional and empathetic when helping my mum and family plan my grandmothers funeral. They made her look so beautiful, they were also really helpful guiding us through what we could and couldn’t do during the pandemic. The little touches such as leaving a rose on my mother’s door was really touching. The whole family were very pleased with the service from both the Mottingham and Deptford branch. We would highly recommend Albins for your loved ones funeral. Thank you so much. God Bless you all.

  • 5 Geoff Phipps 3rd Apr 2021

    A first class funeral director. They collected our mum from hospital two days after her death. During the 7 weeks  mum was in their care everything we asked for was ...yes. .. Our mum was kept in Rotherhithe for 4 weeks and then transferred to the Mottingham chapel of rest where she remained for nearly another 4 weeks under the care of Neil and Denise. A special thank you to Denise who guided us through our darkest hours / days with compassion, she helped us with the order of service cards / arranged for mum to come home for one more night and opened the branch on Saturdays and Sunday's for us to see our mum.  She even made us tea. Denise is a great ambassador to the Albin family..... She must be as she put up with us boys .. The day of the funeral was as perfect as it was ever going to be given that we had lost our girl /our mum /our everything,so a special thank you to George and his boys for conducting the funeral with the same compassion that seems to be in abundance at Albins. A big thank you to the Albin family, I would recommend this organisation to anybody that has suffered loss and is looking for guidance together with compassion during their sad and difficult times.

  • 5 Lisa Hopper 29th Mar 2021

    From start to finish everyone at Albins made a difficult day bearable, they were all excellent and could do enough for you, I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you Albins. 

  • 5 Christine Toovey 23rd Mar 2021

    As a family we cannot praise the professionalism of Albin’s high enough. Our Mum passed away at home, she had arranged her funeral before COVID. From the time we called the ‘out of office’ hours to after the service at the Crematorium the communication, and expertise we received from Denise at the Mottingham branch we will be forever grateful to her she managed to book a church service for us to allow us more time to celebrate Mums life after not being allowed to book a double slot at Falconwood. It was a perfect day. The respect, and compassion Steve, and Neil gave us on the day made us feel special, even the tissues, and bottles of water in the cars is a very special touch. Well done to you all on behalf of Irene Cleary’s family. 

  • 5 Shelley Papadopoulos 22nd Mar 2021

    Passionate,caring, Professional and extremely supportive on this overwhelming sad journey of sending my loved one on to rest.  I cannot imagine holding such a beautiful respectful service without Albins Mortingham staff support - for this I shall be eternally grateful
