They were so professional and the conductor very caring to all the family's wishes. The small touch of leaving a rose on our doorstep and at East Street were perfect.

Helen Masella 17th Sep 2019

With grateful thanks to Shirley who arranged everything for us and talked us through all we needed to put in place you are a gem. From the day Michael was collected from home by Danny and George to the day he was laid to rest he was treated as if he was one of their own. Thanks to Danny and the team on the day for all the reassurance and to Albins as a whole for all the 'little touches' that made the day so memorable and special for us. What an amazing service you provide! Really cannot thank you enough

John Austin 6th May 2019

Special thanks to Shirley and the gentlemen that looked after us on the day of the funeral very professional a credit to company we will recommend you .keep up the good work.

  • 5 Alison Rixon 28th Dec 2018

    The service which Albins give is as excellent as you’d like it to be.  The compassion in which they serve you with, from the moment they turn up at your door to take away your loved one to the very last moment of the funeral, it’s all handled with precisely the right amount of friendliness without being too familiar.  Experts in dealing with the grieving family I personally could not fault this family run business one bit. 

  • 5 Denise LEE 7th Sep 2018

    I cannot thank Shirley and Albins enough for the service they provided. My mother had a funeral which was beyond my expectations simply because of Albins. All the worry and stress was taken away. Albins organised everything. The dreaded day of the funeral arrived but the sight of the hearse and limos with immaculate drivers and red carpets was a show-stopper. The Funeral Conductor Danny and the drivers were so professional, immaculate, supportive and friendly; it was unbelievable. The heavenly voice of Jay Britton and wonderful organist David, was shear perfection. The whole occasion went beautifully and smoothly. All of our guests commented on how wonderful the service was from Albins, saying it was the best funeral they have ever attended. They make you, your family and guests feel so special. Albins provided a beautiful Memory Box, which contained a Book of Condolence for the guests to write in. Nothing was too much for them. Thank you Shirley and Albins. There is absolutely no comparison with any other company.

  • 5 Kimmi Shockley 24th Jul 2018

    Amazing service from start to finish. Couldn't of asked for a better funeral director for my dad. Nothing was ever to much trouble. Very impressed with how they looked after my dad and how he's funeral was conducted.. Shirley was amazing makes you feel very welcome makes the whole process easier to deal with can't thank you all enough. So glad my dad had the best for he's final send off.

  • 5 Hamza Ali 28th May 2018

    Albin’s were professional and understanding to the family needs at this difficult time. 

  • 5 Josephine Foster 29th Apr 2018

    Albins have been absolutely brilliant. They take care of everything, Shirley at Walworth Branch is fantastic, I had a last minute problem with the order of service booklets, she told me to come to the branch, we went through it together and by 4pm I was looking at a proof copy, all sorted, my stress levels gone, marvellous. The guys on the funeral day were brilliant, so professional and so caring. Why have Pepsi when you can have the best champagne, Albins is the Champagne.

  • 5 Michael Read 23rd Apr 2018

    I cant thank Albins enough, especially Shirley the manager of the Walworth branch.... Iv had the unfortunate task of burying 2 loved ones in 3 months, & Albins & Shirley in particular have gone beyond to ensure a sad day went snoothly & was as perfect as could be in the circumstances, In event of another sad occasion I would only use Albins, 100% Fantastic service and value for money.

  • 5 Pamela Houghton 2nd May 2017

    Excellent service from start to finish !! Shirley and the team took the weight off our shoulders, advised us with things we were unsure off.  And on the day of my husband Tony Houghton funeral, they couldnt help us enough. I'm afraid everything was very much a blur so don't remember all the names of the team, but our driver was brilliant joining in with the banter we were having in the car, and helping make a sad occasion a little happier just like our Tony wouldve.  We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you done for us. Oh and I think the horses won the bet !!  Pam Kirstie Barry Ariana Martin and not forgetting little Sasha xx

    Amazing staff

  • 5 Sarah Roberts 28th Nov 2016

    Albins are the most professional but considerate funeral directors who go that extra mile to make sure the family are looked after and comfortable. At the most awful time for any family Albins make it a little bit easier and lead you through every step with empathy and compassion. Excellent service all round. 

  • 5 Kenny Boateng 18th Nov 2016

    Very professional company with helpful friendly staff. They dealt with us sympathetically, kept us fully informed and we cannot find any fault in their service. Thank you so much. Was a pleasure to receive your invoice. Our warmest regards Boateng Family.
