I cannot thank the staff at Albin's enough. An amazing company who made a sad and difficult time run smoothly and with ease. I would especially like to thank Danny who acted as the conductor and did a fantastic job, and to Lynn who was so supportive in organising the whole thing... you helped me to laugh, held me when I needed to cry and made me able to keep standing on my feet throughout. The Celebrant Deborah Hooper was superb. You all gave Michael's family and friends the ability to give him a very special send off and a truly memorable day. For this I will be forever grateful - Diane

From beginning to end my father and us the bereaved family, have been treated with respect and compassion. F.A Albin are second to none. They think of so many details that seem small but mean a lot. Thank you

I honestly can’t thank Albins enough for everything they have done.  We had help and advice even before choosing Albins. John called us and gave us great help and advice to make sure my mum was properly looked after from the start.  We met lovely jo the next day and just felt completely at ease and like we was at home with her straight away. The Crayford branch is just out of this world and I knew straight away that mum would have loved it. Once mum was there they would light her candle every day and chat to mum and let me know they have done so too. All her pictures were in her chapel of rest and it was just so beautiful for us to see.  First class  I can’t thank everyone enough from start to finish.  You completely treated mum with dignity from the very beginning and I just can’t express how grateful I am to you all  Xxxxxx God bless  Xxxxxxx

About Us

Built in 1974 on the site of the Old Runge Hall in Culling Road, the funeral home was built to serve the community and has every facility to assist families at the time of bereavement.

Our premises are located in close proximity to the public transport system and have allocated spaces for customer parking. Our facilities include eight chapels of rest, a large garage to accommodate our modern fleet, a comprehensive mortuary, a museum as well as administration offices.
Also located at Culling Road is our memorial garden, which consists of a large number of niches for families to inter the ashes of their loved ones, boulder plaques, wall and vase plaques where flowers can be placed. All remembrance opportunities are open to everyone so you will not be required to retain ashes in order to dedicate a memorial.

Funeral directors Jonathan and Simon Dyer are responsible for the branch and are available Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm, on Saturdays from 9 am to 2 pm and on Sundays from 10 am to 12 pm. The company operates a 24 hour on call response outside normal working hours.
Our office serves all of the M25 area.

The Albin family first worked as wardens of the Bermondsey cemetery over 200 years ago, to then start serving the community as funeral directors.

Impeccable service 

  • 5 Henry John Howard 7th Jun 2019

    I truly have to say as traumatic as a passing is, in anyone’s Family, it was such a relief to have had  FA Albins & Sons conduct my Mums. To say it was extremely well organised would be the understatement of the year, every aspect from what we wanted and how we wanted it conducted was all taken in, we were made to feel important and it felt as if we had known these people for years as friends. To all those that were involved in the organisation of of my Mum Pats Cremation, My Family and I Thankyou from the bottom of our Hearts.

    Absolutely brilliant, so respectful & professional, nothing was too much trouble. Sent emails and got very quick replies, I cannot thank Simon & his team enough. Everything was expertly done, it helped so much to give my wonderful mum the send off she deserved. Happy to know albins will be our port of call for funerals of my father, my sister & myself as we’ve reserved plots in their beautiful gardens. Wouldn’t dream of using anyone else. Thanks in abundance 🙏🏻💔

  • 5 Ann Bowe 5th May 2019

    Very supportive and respective of both Rebecca and her mother.  Every stage was conducted in a professional and caring way.

  • 5 Anne Boswell 3rd May 2019

    We were absolutely delighted with the service Albins delivered on the day of booking my father’s funeral to the day of the actual funeral.  Their kind gentle way gave such a warm atmosphere to everyone, the respect they showed and patience with all the family on this sad day.  Their ways in which they supported us as a family didn’t go un noticed, it was the small touches like the rose being left at the front door just before we left to go, the suggestions they made I.e the canvas of my dad and son to be taken with us made such a lovely suggestion as there was an easel that we didn’t know was there. The patience they had with all of us not feeling like we had to rush or time was against us.  They are the reason why we always choose albins, their support, communication and service is beyond expectations.  We would like to thank everyone that was with us on Friday 26th April.

    Thanks again to Albins Mottingham for looking after mum when she died. Absolutely professional service from the moment they picked her up till the funeral.

  • 5 Jean Warren 4th Mar 2019

    My fathers funeral went very well.  My dad left from Albin's in Bermondsey his birth place and it was lovely being there and seeing how they did everything.  They asked did anyone want to carry the coffin (which they did......different heights etc but it was sorted when we got to the crematorium) I cannot praise them highly enough.  Attention to every detail. They took a route to take in the area where my Dad had lived and John left a flower with a bow of the head.   I could go on and on about all the details but enough to say they are superb.  The staff on reception just so helpful and feeling.  We had Albin's for my mums funeral also.  THANK YOU ALBINS. Thank you Simon and John and everyone involved in my dad's funeral...ones I may not have seen or knew names of.  Also thank you Steve our Chauffeur.
