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.

    Once again, Albins have done us proud, thank you.   From the moment I called informing them of my Mum's passing, to collecting her from the William Harvey Hospital, Ashford, taking Mum back to Bermondsey, taking care of her and allowing her to rest in their beautiful Chapels of Rest.  Such care and compassion  was shown throughout.   With special thanks to Simon for being so understanding and caring, Jamie for being so kind hearted and Terry, our driver.   Thank you also to all other members of staff who were involved in helping to make such a sad period of time in my life a much easier and  more understanding situation.  A truly professional, caring and compassionate funeral directors, who will never be beaten.    Thank you.   Lesley Wellsted, Family & Friends.
