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*
  • Reassurance for your family – less uncertainty and fewer difficult decisions
  • Flexible ways to pay
  • Access to Golden Charter Rewards programme for a full 12 months, providing your plan stays in place⍭

Golden Charter Rewards is a customer benefit which is available to you when you take out a plan over the phone, online at goldencharter.co.uk, through an intermediary partner or by completing an application form. Currently, the benefit is unavailable through our network of funeral directors. We require an email address when you apply (or within 3 months of applying) so we can email you details of how to access the rewards programme, which is offered through a third party website for 12 months from the start date of your funeral plan. Provided your plan remains in place and the necessary payments have been received, we’ll email the access instructions within ten days from the start date of your plan (or from when we receive your email address if you don’t provide us with one when you apply). Access to Golden Charter Rewards is subject to our terms and conditions which will be included with your plan documents. Offers, discounts and brands are correct at the time of print and are subject to change without notice.
