A pre-paid funeral plan is a secure and cost-effective method of ensuring that your funeral is arranged and paid for with the minimum of fuss. Money that you pay is held by the Golden Charter Trust Fund. By taking out a pre-paid Funeral Plan also means that any wishes you have for the arrangements will be carried out in accordance with your instructions.
Please be aware that not all funeral plans are the same. We have searched the market on your behalf and we believe that the 'Independent Way Funeral Plan' offered by us through Golden Charter is the best quality and value for money funeral plan available. Many package plans available on-line are priced artificially low as they include only an 'allowance' towards disbursements, which can leave families with a much larger disbursement shortfall to pay at the time of need.
You may have seen news reports exposing some funeral plan providers as spending up to 1/3 of a client's fund on marketing and other third-party costs - that means only 2/3 of what a person has invested in a funeral plan goes towards paying for their funeral expenses - YES there are these types of plans out there, but our 'Independent Way Funeral Plan' backed by Golden Charter isn't one of them! - read our blog to find out more.
