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

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.

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.

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

  • 5 Lesley Pearson 9th Apr 2018

    We found the staff very respectful and sensitive to our needs, would highly recommend to others. Albins always carry out their duties with a very high degree of professionalism

  • 5 Sandra Bearman 3rd Apr 2018

    Albins . Wonderful funeral directors. Neil and all were excellent and i would like to thank them from myself and all the family.

  • 5 Rayanne Lingham 3rd Apr 2018

    We couldn't have asked to be in better hands than the Albins team. From start to end they were very attentive to the way they looked after our mum as well as us all. We are forever grateful

  • 5 David Roberts 1st Apr 2018

    Provided a wonderful service for Mum. Their kindness and thoughtfulness in every aspect helped us all through a difficult time.

  • 5 Brian Finch 31st Mar 2018

    We’d expected excellent service with attention to detail but in fact we got more than that. Right from collecting mum to the reception from Neil at the Mottingham office the following day, we felt looked after and everything was taken care of.  On the day of the funeral, we always felt like we were the most important thing in their day and that of course went for dear mum too.  We cannot fault Albins in any way.  

  • 5 Lisa Owens 22nd Mar 2018

    Caring, kind, helpful and very professional. Neil at Mottingham was so helpful and kind in helping us arrange the perfect send off for our mum. Albins gave us a first class service. Thankyou

  • 5 Debbie Hodge 11th Mar 2018

    Services provided by FA Albin are so professional and respectful. I would always recommend them.

  • 5 Jeremy Digweed 2nd Mar 2018

    Neil at the Mottingham branch is excellent at what must be an extremely challenging job. He explained everything to me very calmly and nothing was too much trouble. As a result, the whole process was a lot easier to deal with. His paperwork was spot on and I had no concerns that it would not run smoothly. The men who came on the day were amazing. The main person (Steve?) was so respectful and very good at his job. The little extra touches like tissues and water in the car just add to an extremely professional service. I recommend Albins to anyone who has the unfortunate task of organising a funeral. Their services are first class.

  • 5 John Moore 13th Feb 2018

    The service we received from Albin, both corporate and individually, was excellent and the family would like to thank, in particular, Neil Gamble, who was the epitome of discretion, attention and professionalism.

  • 5 Peter Hanley 13th Feb 2018

    Where do we start... From beginning to end Neil couldn’t do enough for us from making sure we knew immediately that our mum was in the care of Albins to the day of the funeral when he was standing on the corner to pay his respects as we went past on our way to the funeral.Nothing was too much trouble . On the day of the funeral the conductor made sure everything ran smoothly like a military operation ( without the Sargent major) never making us feel rushed and after the service giving us as much time as we needed to view mums flowers and speak to the vast amount of people that came to pay their respects.  We would like to thank everyone that was involved in giving our mum the send off that she deserved we wouldn’t have been able to do it without you . The Reed family 

  • 5 Debbie Russell 6th Feb 2018

    Albums done my mum proud.

  • 5 Clive Jones 5th Feb 2018

    I cannot thank Neil at the Mottingham branch enough, he organised everything which was perfect.. Steve who was at the service made sure everything run smoothly. The staff were all attentive to the family needs. I would and do recommend Albin's services.

  • 5 Yvette Gaude 4th Feb 2018

    Albins go above and beyond and think of every single detail. I cannot recommend them enough. The service they offer is outstanding and I cannot thank them enough for making my Mum's final journey perfect in every way.

  • 5 John Devenish 21st Jan 2018

    The day was done with the most,upmost dignity,and respect.And everyone said how well it was done.Thank you.

  • 5 Elaine Richardson 12th Jan 2018

    Very professional and easy to deal with. My auntie looked lovely in the chapel and it helped to be able to visit her at other times. Neil was very helpful in planning the funeral. 

  • 5 Jennie Elkington 15th Dec 2017

    Thank you to Neil, John and everyone at Albins for helping us organise such a lovely funeral for our beloved David. Your team was so courteous and respectful and took great care to ensure that we were all looked after. 

  • 5 Paula Sparrow 4th Dec 2017

    I can’t thank Albins enough for making the days easier, they had thought of everything, and little touches like the rose on the door, excellent service.

  • 5 Chris Glaister 28th Nov 2017

    Would be happy to recommend this fantastically well run family business to anyone. From initial meeting to final farewell they couldn’t have been more helpful or professional. 

  • 5 Lorraine Line 27th Nov 2017

    The service we received from Albins in Mottingham was exemplary. Neil and all the guys on the day were brilliant. They treated dad with the upmost respect and took care of all aspects of the funeral beautifully. They were kind and even the GP who went to see dad after death commented on how well he was presented. I unreservedly recommend Albins I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Thank you so much for giving dad a great send off.  

  • 5 David Eells 19th Nov 2017

    If I could give 10+ I would.from the start when George and I think Bobby took Ruth they did it with amazing dignity. When I started dealing with Neil it was like having a best friend helping me along the way.Nothing was ever too much every time I saw I spoke to him I felt better knowing that he took another problem off me . On the day John and the guys were absolutely fantastic and helped us to give Ruthie the send off she deserved . I hope I don’t see them all again in the near future but be assured anything to do with me or my friends I know who I’ll be contacting . Thank you all so much Dave

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.
