  • 5 Michelle Dillon 15th Feb 2022

    I went to F.A Albin, Walworth to initially make some enquiries as my father had died. I was all over the place.

    Shirley was brilliant!! Accommodating and informative every step of the way. My family were so impressed and Danny was just as amazing on the day. We all know that it's a difficult time, losing a loved one. The compassion for my family from Shirley and team made such a terrible time, slightly more bearable.

    We could not recommend these guys more highly from the minute we were in contact with them, they made everything so easy Shirley was amazing as were the guys who carried out the funeral so respectfully and professionally.
    It was like having family carry out the funeral they were respectful but also got our humour. We all agree that when our time comes they are the only people we would want to carry out our funerals.

  • 5 Steven Savage 28th Jan 2022

    Always so professional and with great kindness Thank you.

  • 5 Zoe Holbourne 25th Jan 2022

    Myself, my sister and my Stepmother were all delighted with the way F A Albin Walworth conducted the funeral and the arrangements therewith. From start to finish the service was dignified, noble and efficient. Shirley at the branch was warm and full of advice and suggestions. The Reverend John Walker who she recommended to conduct the service was extremely professional and welcoming and the service went without a hitch. On the day, the drivers and pallbearers were very pleasant, warm and professional. We were extremely pleased with the way the funeral itself was conducted. We also thought that our beloved Peter was presented in an excellent way in the Chapel of Rest, he looked so peaceful and so much himself. The recommendation for the lady who did the flowers, Flowers by Tanya, was also first class. Everything about the arrangements were top notch from start to finish; thank you F A Albin for your professional conduct and your service which made the funeral so special.

  • 5 Phyllis Copeland 23rd Jan 2022

    An excellent professional service from start to finish. All the staff that we had contact with were respectful, patient and very informative in answering  any questions that we had. From Shirley in the Walworth branch, to the team who took care of proceedings on the funeral day, I can’t fault any of them and would highly recommend Albin’s to care of any funeral arrangements. A fantastic service!
