I buried my dad with Albins 33yrs ago. They are professional, caring and helpful every step of the way today as they was back then. They make  such a sad occasion less stressful and go way and beyond expectations. I’m truly grateful for your kindness and help through such a sad time. You simply are the best.

About Us

Built in 1974 on the site of the Old Runge Hall in Culling Road, the F.A. Albin & Sons head office was built to serve the community and has every facility to assist families at the time of bereavement.

The premises are located in close proximity to the public transport system and have allocated spaces for customer parking. 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 F.A. Albin & Sons' 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 linda watson 24th Jul 2022

    From the start of my journey with Albins to the end i cannot fault the service and the caring for both my Mum and for my family. I felt relief knowing Mum was safe and being loved in their care from the first second. I could not have wished to be accompanied on this journey with anyone other than Caroline Morrison. At a time where my whole world went insane Caroline calmed me and made it easier for me to plan what i needed with her kindness, caring and guidance. Cannot thank Caroline and Albins enough for making Mums day perfect. Cannot recommend highly enough.
