I'd like to thank all the staff at F. A. ALBINS & Sons for an amazing job they have done right from the beginning of having my mum staying with them allowing me to be there all the time even with the covid going on the receptionist were amazing with all of us & just allowing me my own precious time to be with my mum. The day of my mum's funeral was a truly lovely intimate day for all my family to say our goodbyes even though we couldn't have everyone there I wouldn't change a single thing. Everyone that works at Albins are truly amazing lovely people & from me & my family on behalf of Roseinea Lillian delaney you made her day special ❤️?

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.

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. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
