What can I say about Albins - I could write a book on how marvellous they all are. The service you receive is phenomenal. The personal touch is amazing - they all make you feel like part of their family. Arranging a funeral is one of the hardest things I have had to organise in my life but Albins especially Mickey & John, made me feel at ease and I am so grateful for that. I could not have done this without their help, advice and guidance.

  • 5 Daniel Mc Carthy 21st Jan 2022

    The guys at Albins have been nothing short of brilliant. They truly made a really difficult time so hassle free and were professional, efficient and attentive at every possible moment.  Mickey at the sidcup branch couldn’t of been more helpful and we will always use Albins going forward.

  • 5 Simon Wyeth 22nd Nov 2021

    Mickey made the arrangements simple and straight forward, he and the team on the day were professional, friendly and approachable throughout. Thank you

  • 5 Bridget Young 12th Nov 2021

    Albins we’re excellent and professional.  They looked after our late father and helped us to organise everything seamlessly from start to finish.  We couldn’t have asked for any more.  Thank you.

  • 5 Catherine Emmott 7th Nov 2021

    We were extremely satisfied with the service provided by all the staff at F.A. Albin Sidcup. The men who collected my father's body were efficient and very respectful. Mickey Thorpe, in the office, was helpful and informative at all stages – he gave us excellent suggestions and answered our questions promptly and well. The funeral itself was very well conducted – the funeral director and his staff supported us and our guests and were very considerate, particularly with disability access and inclusion. On the day, it was a lovely gesture when the hearse drove past the Albins Office and the staff stood outside and bowed to our funeral procession – we were very touched by that. Also, the route taken between the funeral and wake was well-chosen to take us through the most scenic areas in our local landscape. Albins was recommended to us by other family members who have used their services – we are very pleased that we chose them and we will certainly recommend them to other people.

  • 5 Christine Robins 27th Jul 2021

    We can’t begin to thank F.A Albins Sidcup enough for their  unbelievable service. They helped us so much with our son Ronnie’s service we will forever be in debt to them. The love and care and level of professionalism that goes into their work is out of this world, we’ve made friends for life. Thank you so much.

  • 5 Sam Smith 22nd Mar 2021

    F.A.Albin Sidcup did my dads funeral 5 years ago and more recently my mums. They made the whole process of both funerals from start to finish much easier, they are compassionate and professional at all times. I would like to especially mention Mickey, Jane and Jon who all went above and beyond and made the lead up to the funeral and the day itself not just about grieving but so special too. I cannot thank & recommend them enough.

  • 5 Ronnie Westpfel 13th Mar 2021

    Exceptional sympathetic service. You get what you pay for. Thank you Mickey

  • 5 Lucy Burton 9th Mar 2021

    I didn't realise a funeral could be such a beautiful affair. Not a single thing could have been better. Mum was looked after like family and I was welcomed, supported and advised daily. Mickey and Jane are two of the most sincere people and leaving a loved one in their care felt so natural. From the embalming to the Chapel, the hearse to the limousines, the attire of the staff to the to the arrangement of the service.....everything was done with pride, decorum and a sprinkle of South London that cannot be replicated. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart. Lucy x
