= and all, and everything

I saw Dick and Tom and Harry an' all.
means something like...
I saw Dick and Tom and Harry and all the rest of them.

They nicked me car, me phone, me wallet an' all.
means something like...
They stole my car, my phone, my wallet and everything.

The expression "an' all" is very informal, a kind of slang.
