Many people in Great Britain have planned their funerals, over 400,000 of them with Golden Charter, the UK's leading independent funeral plan provider.
Consideration for others is the most common reason for buying a Golden
Charter plan. Peace of mind is the most common benefit. With Golden
Charter you know that your loved ones will be spared much of the burden
of bereavement. You'll have specified every detail of the funeral in
advance, selected the funeral director and taken care of the costs.
The price of funerals, like everything else, keeps going up. But no matter
how much the future services of your funeral director may rise in cost,
neither you nor your loved ones will be asked for a penny more for them.
There are some costs that are paid on your behalf by the funeral
director. They are known as disbursements, and include the fees of
cemeteries, crematoria, doctors, clergy, newspaper notices and
memorials. These costs are not within the funeral director's control.
Only if the increase in these costs were to exceed the increase provided
for in the plan might there be any balance to pay at the time of need.
Your money will always be secure. Your payment goes directly to the
Golden Charter Trust, which holds the money for your funeral on
behalf of participating funeral directors. This is why the funeral director
is able to provide a legally binding contract, which guarantees that
your funeral arrangements will be carried out as you wish. The Trust
Fund is a separate legal entity from Golden Charter and the Fund will
continue until every plan has been carried out and payment made to
the funeral director.
If you have an interest in Golden Charter, give me us a call and we will attempt to answer any questions you may have.
It makes sense to purchase a funeral plan from a funeral director. Unlike an unqualified salesman, we are more likely to understand your requirements. If you purchase a Golden Charter funeral plan from us, it will cost quite a bit less than if you were to buy directly from Golden Charter!
