Funeral Plans

A funeral plan can help to provide peace of mind for you and your family and could save you money. You choose the funeral you want and pay for your funeral directors services, included in the plan at today's prices, which can help relieve your family of worries and uncertainty at what is likely to be a distressing time.
The price of funerals, like everything else, has been rising year on year*. That’s why it is more important than ever to be planning ahead and preparing for our future.


Taking out a funeral plan is a sensible and thoughtful way to help protect you against these increases. More than a million people in the UK have taken out a funeral plan***. We recommend funeral plans from Golden Charter, one of the UK’s leading funeral plan providers ^.
With a range of plans and flexible ways to pay, a Golden Charter Funeral Plan offers you exceptional value and choice. You can tailor your plan to meet your personal wishes. This way, your family will find great comfort knowing that your funeral will be carried out according to your wishes.
Plus, with a Golden Charter funeral plan you’ll gain access to Golden Charter Rewards⍭, a customer benefit that lets you access fantastic savings, special deals and discounts from hundreds of leading brands and your favourite shops.
With a Golden Charter Funeral Plan you’ll benefit from:
• Protection against rising costs*
