As you can imagine I found it quite a shock to see that you have the name incorrect on the guide. The person you will be burying is Linda Sage not Sharon Sage!

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.

The most important part was they listened my heartbreak and sorrow if you won't your love ones treated with the same respect and love in there afterlife as the did in life then choose albins I speak from experience x

  • 5 Caroline Reilly 20th Feb 2021

    Albins always give the personal touch. The undertakers are really sensitive to your needs, what ever they are. There uniform and cars are so smart. The florists that they kinda of team up with are the best, which is greens in Jamaica road. 

  • 5 Paul Courtney 16th Feb 2021

    There is something about Albins that is a cut above the others. They treated me with care and empathy after I lost my Mum. Their actual shop in Bermondsey is a beautiful and serene place to enter. Caroline was the member of staff that saw my Dad and me through the process. She was lovely. They treated my Mum with absolute dignity. The funeral itself was perfect. Albins is the best.

  • 5 Nicola Murrell 16th Feb 2021

    I am so grateful for everything Albins has done in looking after my mum, right from the very start to finish. There were also so many added little touches that have made this experience so much easier to deal with. I truly cannot thank everyone at Albins for their extra special little touches. A massive thank you to Scott for all his expertise and dedication towards us as a family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Nicola, Raymond & Michael. 

  • 5 Barbara Smith 16th Feb 2021
