  • 5 Maureeen Bryan 15th Nov 2023

    An extremely professional service all the way.
    At the initial enquiry we started to feel that the team knew exactly what they were doing. On the day of the funeral from the pick up in the morning , to the smartly dressed chauffeurs the caring attitude of the whole team and genuine regard for our family shone through.
    Danny and his team were outstanding nothing was too much trouble they took the time to explain every detail as many times as needed.
    The respect and the care demonstrated was second to none and very much appreciated. There were unexpected touches that meant so much to all of us.
    Shirley at the Walworth branch ....what an absolute diamond she is.
    We can't thank her enough for taking so many of our worries away at a really difficult time.
    She walked us through every step and the attention to detail was exceptional.
    We cannot as a family recommend this family firm enough.

    A really outstandingly classy operation.
    Thank you all so much !

    Thank you so much for the organisation of my darling wife's funeral, which was carried out with dignity and to perfection.

    On the day, the professionalism of the conductor, chauffeurs and pallbearers was faultless. The conductors communication, in particular, was excellent, and ensured everything ran smoothly.

    I chose Albin & Sons because of the company’s 200 years of experience. This was shown in the outstanding quality of the service.

    Thank you all so very much.

    I would highly recommend using Albins's services to anyone who has lost a loved one. The empathy and professionalism of all their staff is outstanding and I'm not sure how I would of managed to get through such a difficult time without them. Shirley who is based at the Walworth Road branch had been my rock from the beginning to the end and was always available if I needed her no matter how small.
