  • 5 Sharon Shrigley 15th Jan 2021

    At a difficult time, it is always useful to have people who are sympathetic, professional & understand your wishes. This is particularly relevant during the covid pandemic.
    The whole Albin's team were exceptional, from the time we met with Mickey at the funeral parlour, to plan the funeral, until the day of the funeral, when Jon and his team ensured that everything went without a hitch.
    I would have no qualms in recommending the services of this company to deal with your loved one.

  • 5 Nicola Anthony 3rd Jul 2020

    Received an outstanding service from F A Albin recently when our aunt passed away. My late father and uncle had been cared for by them in previous years so we knew they were our first choice of undertaker. Great support, advice, understanding and respect from the beginning and all the way through from all their staff. Even the smallest details made such a difference to our family at this difficult time. Highly recommended.

  • 5 Barry Kim Trayler 5th Feb 2020

    Excellent in every way from start to finish !! Nothing is too much trouble . When it’s a time like this when you have lost a loved one you need compassion and professionalism. This company has it all even the extra little touches like leaving a rose on the door as we left for the crematorium.  Most if all they are very respectful in every way to the one you have lost. Micheal was outstanding and John and his team just immaculate, caring compassionate and very respectful in every way . I could go on for ages about how good they are !!! I wouldn’t let my loved ones be in anybody else’s hands . I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family and have done in the past . Plus we had Father Micheal who was amazing and Katie to do the flowers truly made the day special all of you x

    Mickey showed us all compassion during a very emotional time for the family. His advice was invaluable when arranging the funeral for my late husband.
    On the day of the funeral the pallbearers were very respectful, thank you Danny for all the support you gave us and the assistance you gave my son and son in laws when they carried the coffin into the crematorium. All the Albins staff showed emotional strength which was crucial to us during a very difficult time.
