A most thoughtful decision
A Golden Charter funeral plan provides complete peace of mind for you and your family – and you could save money. You choose the funeral you want and pay for our services at today’s prices, relieving your family of any worries and uncertainty at a distressing time.
Protect yourself against the rising cost of funerals
In the past five years, funeral costs have increased by 45%. If this trend continues, a funeral costing “£2,800 will cost “£ 4,060 by 2016. Taking out a Golden Charter funeral plan is a sensible and thoughtful way to protect yourself and your family against these increases.
The Golder Charter funeral plan guarantee
We guarantee that there will be nothing more to pay for our services, no matter how much they may rise in the future. Once your plan is fully in place and paid for, you have the reassurance that neither you nor your family will be asked to pay any more for these services
There are some costs that are paid on your behalf by the funeral director, known as third party costs, which include the fees for cemeteries, doctors and clergy. These costs are not within your funeral directors control. Only if the increase in these costs were to exceed the growth of the plan might there be any balance to pay at the time of need.
Plus, you have the complete reassurance that your money is protected. When you pay by a single payment or by instalment, your money goes into the Golden Charter Trust, a legally separate entity that is managed by an independent Board of Trustees.
A choice of plans, with the option to add your own personal touches
With a range of plans and flexible ways to pay, a Golden Charter funeral plan offers you exceptional value and choice. Plus, you can tailor your plan to meet your personal wishes, from the service and type of coffin, to the music, flowers and readings. No matter how simple or unusual the request, we’ll ensure that every detail is honoured. This way, you and your family will have the comfort of knowing your funeral will be carried out according to your wishes.
