Pre Paid Funeral Plans

A funeral plan can provide peace of mind for you and your family and could save you money. You choose the funeral you want and pay for our services included in the plan at today's prices, relieving your family of worries and uncertainty at a distressing time.

Preparing for Our Future

The price of funerals, like everything else, has been rising year on year. That’s why it is more important than ever to be planning ahead and preparing for our future.

Funeral Plan Advantages

An ever growing side to our business is the request and need for people to pre-arrange their funeral. There are many advantages to doing this: most importantly it gives you the opportunity to lay down all your wishes and instructions for your funeral; from whether you are buried or cremated, to which hymns or music you would like.

Peace of Mind

When you take out a funeral plan with Golden Charter, you have the reassurance that comes with choosing one of the UK’s largest funeral plan providers. Over 700,000 people have chosen to plan ahead with Golden Charter, now you can get that peace of mind too.

Golden Charter Trust

You can be sure that your money will always be safe. Your payment will go directly to the Golden Charter Trust, which will hold the money for your funeral until it is required. The Trust Fund is a legally separate entity from Golden Charter. In the unlikely event of something untoward affecting the company, the Trust Fund would continue until every plan has been carried out.

Your Wishes and Needs

In arranging your funeral planning we will meet with you to discuss all your wishes and needs, answer any questions and build you the funeral plan that best suits your requirements and will be costed on what you require. The plan can be paid in full either by cheque, debit or credit card or by direct debit over 12 months interest free.

The Independent Way

The Independent Way Funeral Plan provides you with peace of mind and will spare your family or loved ones the burden of high funeral costs and the worry of deciding on the funeral arrangements.  The plan allows you to include and pay for any of your wishes at current day costs.  This then relieves some of the burden on those bereaved as they know that they are doing exactly as you wished.
