As an independent funeral director we are able to offer a full range of funeral plans, on behalf of Golden Charter, which ensures we can provide a plan that suits your individual needs.
Different payment options are available, from a one-off payment to regular monthly payments over an agreed number of years.
Tailor Made Plans
For many people, planning their funeral has become an everyday way of looking at the future.
Nearly a million people in Great Britain have taken out a funeral plan. Usually, they have known the grief of bereavement and don’t want their families to go through the stress of making arrangements. Many have established a relationship of trust with their local family funeral director. Who better to advise them on such a sensitive topic and assist them with all the details?
A guarantee that covers all our services
No matter how much our services may rise in cost in years to come, once your plan is fully in place, neither you nor your loved ones will be asked for a penny more for them. It’s a guarantee that gives you peace of mind. You can be assured that your family will be spared what could be a financial worry.
There are some costs that we are obliged to pay on your behalf. These third party costs include the charges of cemeteries and crematoria, as well as the fees of clergy or officiates and the costs of newspaper notices and memorials. The amount of this expenditure is not within our control and may require a further payment at the time of need.
A sound financial decision
When you take out a funeral plan, you have the reassurance that your money is protected. You select how you wish to pay for your plan and, depending on your choice; your money is paid into the Golden Charter Trust.
Your money grows and, when the time comes, we receive the payment, including any growth, and use this money to provide the agreed services to your family. No matter how much costs have risen in the intervening period, your loved ones will not be asked for a penny more for the guaranteed funeral director’s services included within your plan.
Protection against rising funeral costs
Paying in advance for your funeral is a sensible decision that will save money, benefiting your family or estate. We guarantee that, as long as your plan is paid for, there’ll be no more to pay for the services within our control.
