Funeral Plans

Start planning for later life

With our funeral plans your payments are protected. Your money is paid into the Golden Charter Trust which is run by a Board of Trustees. The Trust is completely independent of Golden Charter.

Your money is safe and secure

The Trustees are chosen for their skills and experience and safeguard the payments made by our plan holders. They make sure all future payments can be made, which means we can guarantee the funeral director services included in your plan will be delivered at the time they are required.

Rising costs

The price of funerals like everything else, keeps going up. Since 2004, average funeral costs have risen by 112%.

The main reason for this is the rise in third party costs, which the funeral director has no control over, such as fees for the crematorium or cemetery and officiant fees. If this trend continues, in another 10 years the average funeral will cost over £7,200.
Taking out an Independent Way Funeral Plan is a sensible and thoughtful way to protect yourself and your family against these increases.
