  • 5 Kathleen Salter 27th Jun 2021

    Can not tell you how amazing albins and son were because I have no words to describe how wonderful they are and how amazing my dads funeral was. We couldn’t have ask for a more perfect send off for my dad. Simon Jon and all the staff at Albins were compassionate and caring and utterly professional and looked after my dad from the moment my dad was picked up from our home and in trusted in their care . We were truly honoured and felt such pride on how beautiful and perfect the funeral was for my dad George salter From the moment ALFIE AND LOUIE came to our home and took my dad we felt comfortable knowing that dad was being looked after and we could rest knowing that my dad was treated with so much love and respect the lads Bowing to my dad and talking to him while moving him to take him to Albins. I never met such respectable gentleman before and I’m thankful for their compassionate kindness in our time of grief. And to Shirley @the Walworth branch what an amazing lady she had every thing we wanted down to the letter and made my mum and myself feel comfortable and at ease. She was amazing and we are so thankful to her . And the amazing work done on a custom coffin we wanted for dad . Custom made and painted with my dads favourite album . Pink floyds.. DARKSIDE OF THE MOON.  I wouldn’t give ALBIN AND SONS a 5 star review I would give them 100 star review but this website only went up to 5 stars. I wouldn’t have gone anywhere else for dads funeral Albins was our first and only choice to help dad progress on to his final resting place  So thank you SIMON ,JON AND  GEORGE ALFIE LOUIE SHIRLEY AND ALL  THE STAFF @ F.A.ALBINS AND SONS

    From visiting Shirley at the funeral parlour to on the day of the funeral. Everyone made us feel at ease at this sad time. I have used Albins before and they work in a very professional and compassionate manner. Can not fault them. Hopefully not too soon in the future, I will always go back to them and recommend to family and friends. Excellent service all round.

    Absolutely wonderful! In all aspects F A Albin & Sons provided a superb service. Shirley guided us through making the arrangements with kindness and sensitivity; on the day, Steven and his team made sure that everything proceeded respectfully and with dignity. Their attention to detail, professionalism and patience were very much appreciated by the family and commented on by attendees. We would have no hesitation in recommending Albin's to support any family through such a difficult time.

    This was the third time we have used Albins. Each time they have treated us with such care. Nothing is too much for them. Our Mum was taken care of so very well, with dignity and respect. The whole funeral service was beautiful and the team could not do enough for you. It made the entire situation a little more bearable. Any questions we had, were answered promptly and explained very well. Shirley was wonderful when discussing all the arrangements with us from the very beginning. Thank you all.
