The care attention and respect given to not just my father but also to me was far beyond any expectations I could have had. Thanks to all involved from the beginning to the end. You made everything everything so much easier for me. 

Colin Clark 3rd Feb 2018

Can not fault anything Albin's done for us. From the moment I made the first call they were not just helpful but also made sure we knew what we should be doing and when. Lovely people and fantastic service and customer service. I would highly recommend.

Peter Cathcart 2nd Feb 2018

Funerals are never easy for anyone. Very emotional and very difficult for family and friends. Albins are simply the best. Everything was organised to perfection. Nothing was too much trouble. Always available to deal with any issue. They took away all the stress of organising the Church and the burial. On the day they were superb. They looked and acted the part from start to finish. The attention to detail could not be faulted. The Priest was extremely impressed with the way they handled all aspects of the funeral and burial and many of the guests made similar comments. Simon and the boys made such an impression on everyone. We all departed feeling Peter had had the best possible send off thanks to them. What more can I say. Thank you is inadequate but heartfelt.

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 Ashleigh McDonald 16th Oct 2017

    Albins have done services for both my grandads in the past but I didnt really fully appreciate them at the time but this time round having to deal with them first hand for my mum I can honestly say they went above and beyond my expectations. From start to finish I can't fault them, absolutely amazing service, so kind and compassionate. Can't thank them enough for everything they've done for myself and my family.

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.

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.
