Basic Plans from Golden Charter

Cremation only plans are becoming more popular with customers who don’t want a traditional funeral service but who do want to make their wishes known and avoid rising cremation costs. We believe that everyone should have a choice of the type of final farewell they want and that’s why we have introduced our new Basic Plan range. 

Basic

£19.25 *

per month

or

£1,950

in full

A lower cost alternative to a traditional funeral plan, a Basic Plan could be the perfect option if you want to take care of things on you own terms. As well as the provision of professional services and making all arrangement for the cremation including care of the deceased, the Basic Plan also includes a £500 allowance towards third party costs such as the fees or the cremation at the crematorium. Your cremation arrangements will be carried out with the utmost respect by a local funeral director.  

Please note the Basic Plan does not include a funeral service, funeral procession from home to crematorium, limousines or family viewing and the funeral director chooses the time, date and location of the cremation.

*Based on a 50 year old paying by fixed monthly payments.

**Additional costs relating to the return of ashes may be payable at the time of death.
