Newington Funeral Directors


Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do when someone dies?

When someone dies you need to get a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death from a doctor, register their death and choose a funeral director to arrange their funeral. The Registration Office will give you a Death Certificate and Certificate for Burial or Cremation (GR021 in Northern Ireland).

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

The staff were exceptional in their care offered throughout the arrangements. We were able to provide a beautiful send off thanks to the arrangements offered, we couldn’t have asked for more in a difficult time.

The services provided by F.A.Albin & Sons was exemplary. From the first contact just after Mark had passed away, to the funeral itself. Nothing is too much trouble and they accommodated our special wishes with good grace. They have been courteous and professional throughout. The hearse and the cars are top notch and every member of the team looked pristine. They certainly helped to make the whole day feel so special. No-one can match Albins for quality and care. They really are the Number 1 funeral directors.  Thankyou to Simon and his team.

Myself, my sister and my Stepmother were all delighted with the way F A Albin Walworth conducted the funeral and the arrangements therewith. From start to finish the service was dignified, noble and efficient. Shirley at the branch was warm and full of advice and suggestions. The Reverend John Walker who she recommended to conduct the service was extremely professional and welcoming and the service went without a hitch. On the day, the drivers and pallbearers were very pleasant, warm and professional. We were extremely pleased with the way the funeral itself was conducted. We also thought that our beloved Peter was presented in an excellent way in the Chapel of Rest, he looked so peaceful and so much himself. The recommendation for the lady who did the flowers, Flowers by Tanya, was also first class. Everything about the arrangements were top notch from start to finish; thank you F A Albin for your professional conduct and your service which made the funeral so special.
