Are you aged over 50?

One of the most thoughtful decisions you could possibly make is to take out a pre- paid Funeral Plan from Golden Charter, the UK's largest independent Funeral Plan provider.

In today's economy, funeral costs are rising fast, many people cannot afford luxuries, let alone major expenses in times of bereavement. Our team of expert funeral planners can arrange everything to give you and your loved ones total peace of mind, knowing that the burden of funeral costs have already been taken care of.

Taking a decision now to plan for your funeral and to cover funeral costs at today's prices is a sound financial decision. Back in 2004, an average funeral cost around £1,920. However, recent research (Mintel 2012) shows the average cost of a funeral in the UK is now £3,284 –  an increase of 71% in eight years, well above the general level of inflation. If this trend continues, the average cost of a funeral in 2020 will be more than £5,600.

A funeral plan from Golden Charter lets you fix the cost of your funeral at today' prices, when you choose cremation. There will be nothing more to pay for your funeral, no matter how much costs rise.

Planning your Arrangements

You can choose from a number of plan options to match your budget and preferences, and specify particular requirements within those options. You can decide everything in advance if you wish, down to the kind of music you'd like - and there's no charge for changing or updating your wishes at a later stage. 

Security and simplicity

When you take out a funeral plan, you have the reassurance that your money is protected. Your money is invested to ensure that, whatever happens, there will be sufficient funds available for your funeral to taouke place as specified – providing protection against inflation, rising costs, or any change to Golden Charter’s company status.

Taking out a plan is a simple and thoughtful way to provide for you family and take care of things you would prefer not to pass on after you've gone, such as funeral costs and the stress of making detailed arrangements. Instead you give your family the comfort and reassurance that they are carrying out your specific wishes.
