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.

    F.A. Albin & Sons were the utmost professionals when dealing with every aspect of our mothers funeral. From the initial visit to the funeral itself, their service has been second to none. Neil at the Mottingham branch was simply amazing and nothing was ever too much trouble. The staff on the day were also brilliant, professional and friendly at all times. We would recommend them to anyone with the highest praise.

  • 5 Lorraine Gibson 2nd Oct 2018

    Simon and all the staff at Albins gave our lovely mum the send off she deserved. Their attention to detail on the day , the understanding and compassion they gave us as a family and just the way they all conducted themselves at the funeral were excellent.  Nothing seemed too much trouble and Simon made sure a very emotional day ran as smoothly as possible.  I would highly recommend. 

  • 5 Peter Sidhom 30th Sep 2018

    Everything was handled with sensitivity and kindness, and also patience when the arrival of a group of friends was delayed and I had to ask for the service to start fifteen minutes late! Janet loved a bit of theatre, and I'd arranged a little bit of drama for the casket's entrance and exit, which your people performed to perfection. Many of the people present said it was one of the most moving and memorable services they could recall, and I'm sure a part of that was your handling of it. Thank you.

  • 5 Kathy Johnes 24th Sep 2018

    Despite the sad occasion of our Mother's funeral it turned out to be a beautiful day. This was due to the professionalism shown by the Albin's team. It was the care, grace and dignity shown that will stay with me forever. Many thanks to Joanna, Jon and all the staff. With best wishes from Paul Monaghan and all the family.

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.

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.
