What is a funeral plan?

A funeral plan from Golden Charter is an easy way to organise your funeral arrangements in advance and specify your wishes. It’s a chance to help get peace of mind, for you and the ones you care about.

A funeral plan can save your family worry and expense, and help make things easier for your loved ones at a difficult time. As our customers often tell us, that can be a big weight off your mind.

Our funeral plans

As everyone has different needs when it comes to funeral planning, we make sure our plans are as flexible as possible. We have five plans to choose from, so whether you’d like a traditional cremation or burial service, or a no-fuss direct cremation with no service or attendees, you’ll be able to pick the plan that best suits your needs and budget.

* The pay monthly price of our Basic Plan is based on a 50 year old paying by the instalment payment option with a £49 deposit over 10 years. An instalment charge is included based on the term you select and is included in the overall cost of your funeral plan.
