Pre-Paid Funeral Plans
Funeral costs in the UK are rising every year. While the average cost of a funeral in 2004 was £1,920, today it's £4,078. That's an increase of 112% - well above inflation. At this rate, in another 10 years, the average cost of a funeral could be more than £7,000. With funeral costs rising every year*, a Golden Charter Funeral Plan offers an easy way to fix our costs at current prices.

Pre-planning your own funeral can also help relieve relatives and friends of the planning that is needed for a funeral, as well as giving you peace of mind that your personal preferences are noted. For example, whether you wish to be buried or cremated, what type of service you would prefer, even hymn or song choice can all be arranged so that when the time comes everything is in order.
If you would like to know more, please give one of our offices a call and we can send you further information. If you would like to speak to a funeral director in person that's fine, give us a call and this can be arranged.
(For your peace of mind, the funeral plans we provide are backed by Golden Charter Trust, giving you the confidence that the money you have paid will be safely protected. The Trust complies with the Rules and Code of Conduct of the Funeral Planning Authority, which requires that all monies from the sale of funeral plans by Golden Charter are placed in the Trust until the time of need).
