Cover the cost of our services in the future

Funeral Plans

Take the weight off your mind and help save your family from worry and expense. Golden Charter funeral plans offer a chance to fix the costs of our funeral director services.

Golden Charter Funeral Plans

Talking about death and funerals isn’t easy. And yet there are several very good reasons why having a funeral plan in place makes perfect sense – from an emotional, practical and financial point of view. From a traditional funeral, to something simpler, with a plan in place you can make sure you get the send-off you really want.

A plan allows you to specify your wishes and pay for the funeral director’s services included in your plan. As customers often tell us, that can bring peace of mind to you and your family. A plan from Golden Charter also includes an allowance towards third-party costs. These are essential, non-funeral director services such as the cremation or burial fees, plus the minister or officiant’s fee to perform the service.  The value of the allowance included in your plan may grow over time. There will only be more to pay at the time of the funeral if the third-party costs exceed the allowance when you buy your plan, or if the costs increase by more than the growth of your plan.
