I cannot put into words the service provided from the first meeting with Dawn and Christine to the funeral with Simon and his team. Caring, compassionate, understanding, an eye for detail nothing too much trouble.  A friend (Stephanie Ham) recommended you after using you for her father in law’s funeral recently and everything she told me was exactly how you made a difficult time for us easier. Thank you Dawn, Christine, Simon and the wider team. Tracey 

Nikki Ryan 4th Jun 2022

Excellent, respectful and compassionate at all times. Thank you for the small touches that you did like leave a white rose on my Dads front door before we departed for the chapel

Debbie Mcfall 2nd Jun 2022

    Our families have used Albins for their funerals for a long time, parents grandparents and great grandparents we have always had excellent service. 

  • 5 Michelle Clohessy 29th Mar 2022

    As a family, we have been using the services of Albin's for a number of years and we wouldn't go anywhere else. They are professional, but caring, from the moment you first get in touch with them until the funeral is over. They try to make all the arrangements go as smoothly as possible so you don't need to worry. They are kind and considerate and nothing is too much trouble.

  • 5 Anne Sceeny 16th Mar 2022

    Thank you so much staff at Welling branch fantastic care and attention to detail. Chris so kind and sensitive .as is Dawn. Our mum was treated with dignity and respect . Help with our Mass perfect . We really did not have to worry about a thing. Steve on the day ensured everything went well. Really cannot recommend Albins enough. We had a funeral plan too which was a good idea as sensitive decisions re planning a funeral had already been planned and didnt need to be spoken about when so recently bereaved. Thank you .

    I cannot thank Albins enough for everything they did for me and the support they gave me in organising Ray’s funeral at what was an extremely difficult time.

    Albins have done both my parents funerals, I have to say there attention to detail is outstanding !!  Jon and his colleagues are amazing and make a somewhat upsetting time in your life a whole lot easier by pretty much taking all the stress away to allow you to grieve with your loved ones. I not only have to thank Jon personally but Christine and Dawn at the Welling branch of Albins who were absolutely incredible with there patience, compassion throughout. Outstanding service, thank you for everything. Steve Ashdown

    I cannot thank the Albin’s team enough for their compassion and sensitivity.

I would recommend Albin’s without hesitation. Amanda & Andrea 

  • 5 Wendy Baker 4th Oct 2021

    Chris and Dawn cared for us at the Welling Branch and Steve and his team looked after us on the day. They were all extremely professional and at the same time very kind and anticipated everything we might need. They made everything so easy and kept us informed of progress as things went along and I took great comfort knowing that F A Albin were looking after my dear mother.

  • 5 Michael Barrett 6th Sep 2021

    Outstanding service, nothing was too much trouble and would definitely recommend. Christine and Steve went above and behind for us as a family. And Darren Pruce was amazing, my nan would have been so very proud of him for being so professional and strong for all our family.

  • 5 Hayley Turner-Dobbin 31st May 2021

    FA Albins were wonderful from start to finish they spoke to my mum to help he plan her funeral and didn't push any extras but listened to what she wanted. On her passing they were professional and compassionate. They made organising the day effortless and the personal touches they added were beautiful including Christine standing outside Albins as the cars drove passed and paid her respects ... George and the team on the day didn't rush us and couldn't do more for us. 100% would recommend.

  • 5 John M. Burgess 11th May 2021

    Unforunately, we lost both of our parents within three months. In both cases, we trusted Albins to take care of the funeral arrangements. Quite simply, they were brilliant and every single member of staff we met were absolutely wonderful people.

  • 5 Adrian Markwell 1st May 2021

    We used their Welling branch and Christine was very attentive.  On the day, Steve was very professional, helpful and made the lead up to the ceremony stressless. As a family we would highly recommend FAAlbin to organise your loved ones final journey.
