We recommend Golden Charter Funeral Plans

Golden Charter funeral plans are the leading funeral planning network for independent funeral directors in this country.

  • With our help you can plan in advance with a Funeral Plan so everything is taken care of and your wishes are followed.

  • The Advantages of Taking Out a Funeral Plan

    A funeral plan allows you peace of mind to know you are minimising the decisions that your family and friends are found with at an emotional time – and your specific wishes are carried out.

  • Organise and pay in advance

    Making funeral arrangements in advance of your own death has become increasingly popular. Many people choose this option to alleviate the burden and distress at such an emotional time.

    You can spread payments over a number of instalments or payments can be made in one instalment.
