I highly recommend Albin’s.  They made a very difficult time bearable.  Their attention to details and considerate nature is second to none.   A special mention to Danny at the Plaistow branch and Caroline.

    We found Albins to be both understanding and sympathetic to our needs. They were in contact with us all the way guiding us through the paperwork and requirements for the funeral service and interment of our mother.  On the day of the funeral Jamie was exceptionally helpful and sympathetic and took us through the motions of what was required of us with no fuss and total respect.
