Golden Charter - Smart Planning for Later Life
Golden Charter

What's included in every plan?

There are four great pre-paid funeral plans to choose from so you can pick the one that best suits your needs. 

Essential third party costs 

As well as the funeral director's own services, the cost of a funeral also includes certain essential third party costs. These include fees for cremation or burial, and fees for the clergy or officiant.  These costs are beyond the control of your funeral director but will be paid by them at the time.

 

The Standard, Select and Premier Plans include a £940 allowance towards essential third party costs. Only if these costs were to increase more than the growth of the plan might there be more to pay at the time of the funeral.

 

We have also launched a new funeral plan option – the Value Plan starting from £2,895, giving you an even wider choice of plans to suit your needs.

What every plan includes:

  • The funeral director’s services (Your funeral director will provide expert advice and guidance on all aspects of the funeral arrangements).

  • Advice on the certification and registration of the death and related documentation (the funeral director will support your loved ones and make it as straightforward as possible).

  • The coffin (the coffin type is dependent upon the plan you purchase)

  • Transportation of the deceased to a suitable resting place within a 15 mile radius

  • Care of the deceased prior to burial or cremation (excluding embalming)

  • A hearse to a local cemetery or crematorium (our Select and Premier plans also include the use of one or two limousines for the deceased’s loved ones).

  • Confidential assistance with bereavement counselling, if required (the level of assistance provided is dependent upon the type of plan purchased).

  • A Will for you, a family member or a friend which will be reviewed by our legal team.
