About Us

Built in 1974 on the site of the Old Runge Hall in Culling Road, the funeral home was built to serve the community and has every facility to assist families at the time of bereavement.

Our premises are located in close proximity to the public transport system and have allocated spaces for customer parking. Our facilities include eight chapels of rest, a large garage to accommodate our modern fleet, a comprehensive mortuary, a museum as well as administration offices.
Also located at Culling Road is our memorial garden, which consists of a large number of niches for families to inter the ashes of their loved ones, boulder plaques, wall and vase plaques where flowers can be placed. All remembrance opportunities are open to everyone so you will not be required to retain ashes in order to dedicate a memorial.

Funeral directors Jonathan and Simon Dyer are responsible for the branch and are available Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm, on Saturdays from 9 am to 2 pm and on Sundays from 10 am to 12 pm. The company operates a 24 hour on call response outside normal working hours.
Our office serves all of the M25 area.

The Albin family first worked as wardens of the Bermondsey cemetery over 200 years ago, to then start serving the community as funeral directors.

  • 5 Tony McDade 29th Oct 2019

    We received such outstanding care and attention; the five star rating does not give it justice. We want to personally thank Scott, Simon and the team at the actual funeral - words cannot express our gratitude. Albins made such a difficult time much easier and for that we are extremely grateful,  Tony, Angie McDade and family. 

  • 5 Yvonne Lakeram 27th Oct 2019

    This will be the fifth family member that Albins have looked after for us, they are the most wonderful set of people, kind, thoughtful and nothing is to much trouble. I trust them completely with the most important people in my life. Barry was a saint, all of them had the best tutor, RIP Barry. I lost my Dad in January 2019, so I have to apologise for not writing sooner, I didn't even see this email before now. I've already made sure that when it's my time, Albins will be there for me. Thank you so much Neil.

  • 5 Claire Breeze 25th Sep 2019

    I would like to thank F A Albin & Sons for the excellent service they provided for our family during a very difficult time. They went above and beyond any expectations and nothing was too much trouble for all their staff to support us whilst we were grieving. They provided a first class service and made the funeral arrangements less stressful. Thank you.  

  • 5 Nicholas Garvey 24th Sep 2019

  • 5 Laila Abraham 11th Sep 2019

  • 5 Carly Roberts 9th Sep 2019

    Exceptional service

  • 5 Tony Brown 8th Sep 2019

    There are Funerals and Funeral Directors, and then there are Albin Funerals and Albin Funeral Directors. My family have been using Albin's since they began trading well over 200 years ago. I remember my Father telling me that his Grandfather had been buried by one of the founders of Albin's. My Father attended school with Freddie Albin back in the early 1920's and in my lifetime Albin's have attended dozens and dozens of my families funerals and been there in our need. I come from a very large Bermondsey family and whenever we have lost "one of ours" it is "one of theirs" that is right there with us. From the start to well after the finish, they just know. They know what you want, what you need and that is indescribable and uncalcable. There is a style and finesse with a Funeral at Albin's which I have never seen with any other firm. The Cars, Chauffeurs, Bearers, Conductors are absolutely immaculate. Their attention to detail is second to none. If you are looking for a benchmark to aspire to as a competitor, you have got 200 years and many generations to catch up on. Many people are frightened of death, but when the clock of life stops ticking, be sure to call on Albin's because they will look after you on your final journey and those you leave behind just like you was one of their own. Tony Brown

  • 5 Lloyd Stephens 7th Sep 2019

  • 5 Nicola Frew 28th Jun 2019

    Joanna, Jon and all the team at Albins we’re absolutely incredible. They made my mums day the best it possibly could be. The attention to detail and little touches they added never went unnoticed. Thank you Albins you are a special team x

  • 5 Matthew Gibbons 24th Jun 2019

    Pure class from start to finish, really could not be more accomodating, and most of all respectful. My Dad insisted on Albins for his day, and they didn't disappoint. An absolute credit to their trade. Thankyou

  • 5 Diane Jones 22nd Jun 2019

    I cannot thank the staff at Albin's enough. An amazing company who made a sad and difficult time run smoothly and with ease. I would especially like to thank Danny who acted as the conductor and did a fantastic job, and to Lynn who was so supportive in organising the whole thing... you helped me to laugh, held me when I needed to cry and made me able to keep standing on my feet throughout. The Celebrant Deborah Hooper was superb. You all gave Michael's family and friends the ability to give him a very special send off and a truly memorable day. For this I will be forever grateful - Diane

  • 5 Kerry Stoddart 17th Jun 2019

    From beginning to end my father and us the bereaved family, have been treated with respect and compassion. F.A Albin are second to none. They think of so many details that seem small but mean a lot. Thank you

  • 5 Shelley Louise Purssey 11th Jun 2019

    I honestly can’t thank Albins enough for everything they have done.  We had help and advice even before choosing Albins. John called us and gave us great help and advice to make sure my mum was properly looked after from the start.  We met lovely jo the next day and just felt completely at ease and like we was at home with her straight away. The Crayford branch is just out of this world and I knew straight away that mum would have loved it. Once mum was there they would light her candle every day and chat to mum and let me know they have done so too. All her pictures were in her chapel of rest and it was just so beautiful for us to see.  First class  I can’t thank everyone enough from start to finish.  You completely treated mum with dignity from the very beginning and I just can’t express how grateful I am to you all  Xxxxxx God bless  Xxxxxxx
