Albins and Sons have rightly earned their reputation as one of the best and well established funeral directors in South London.  They were professional and caring in the preparation of my father's funeral. Thank you!

    My family and I are extremely pleased with the service we received.  Very professional and welcoming from beginning to end and they met all our needs and my Mother’s wishes despite this pandemic. They made us all feel comfortable and my Mother’s funeral was perfect, which they played a big role in as result of all their hard work. The day was beautiful, one the family will never forget. Thank you. 

  • 5 Veronica Alexander 18th May 2020

    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.

  • 5 Kitty Tranter 21st Mar 2020

    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.

  • 5 Lorraine Conroy 10th Mar 2020

    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.

    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.

  • 5 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

  • 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

    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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
