About Us

Built in 1974 on the site of the Old Runge Hall in Culling Road, the F.A. Albin & Sons head office was built to serve the community and has every facility to assist families at the time of bereavement.

The premises are located in close proximity to the public transport system and have allocated spaces for customer parking. 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 F.A. Albin & Sons' 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.

    I am very happy I chose Albin & Sons to arrange our beloved father’s funeral service. Simon & Peter provided assistance at every step of the process and impressed me with their professionalism and dedication. They took some of the stress away in what has been a difficult time for us. James was also excellent on the day of the service at the Chapel. 
    I can’t praise the team of Albin & Sons enough for their excellent service and attention to detail and would happily recommend them.

They were so, so well organised. Attentive. Considerate and helpful. We would never go to anyone else. Thank-you so so much everyone

  • 5 Jochen Glemser 25th Mar 2024

    FA Albin & Sons provided a great service and help in the organisation of the funeral of my late wife. Simon and all staff, especially Joanna, Christine and Danny, were always there to answer questions, propose considerations, and guide reassuringly through all stages of saying farewell; from the repose in the private chapel, the placing of the coffin in church, through to the funeral mass and cremation. Through their calm, dignifying and professional manner they gave us the time and space to say goodbye, as well as to reflect in this sad moment without having to worry about arrangement technicalities. Thank you sincerely again.

  • 5 Brenda Francis 23rd Mar 2024

    Albins are definitely a comfort. I’ve never lost anyone in my life at 42 and they made this a very easy and comforting transition and process. They are there every step of the way and have the most respect and kindness from day one. Christine on the reception is even kind. Scott and Jamie looked after us and we as a
    Family will be forever greatfull and thankful for them.
