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.

  • 5 Maureen Statham 23rd Dec 2023

    My family have used Albins for over fifty years.  From the minute you contact them, you know you are in safe hands.  I have had two bereavements this year and the worry and the stress has been greatly alleviated by the kindness, patience and sheer professionalism of all the staff.  Nothing is too much trouble.  Barry Albin-Dyer was a hard act to follow but he taught his two sons, Simon and Jonathon well and they are a credit to him.  Thank you all very much.

  • 5 Patricia Isaacs 11th Dec 2023

    Feedback from relatives and friends who attended the funeral also commented on their professionalism & dignified way in which everything was handled. We would like to extend our gratitude to Scott who dealt with the family personally and John who took charge on the day, this was a very emotional and stressful time for the deceased mother & other members of the family, but everything possible was done to ensure that the day was went as smoothly and for this we are extremely grateful. Thank you & God bless
