Funeral planning

Golden Charter funeral plans

We are seeing a big increase in people wanting to pre-arrange and pay for their own funeral. Paying for a funeral in advance takes away the financial burden for those left behind. Your wishes are carried out according to your instructions.

Our funeral plans are fully guaranteed, as the funeral directors professional charges are set in stone so they will never alter, the only part of a Funeral plan that can change is the ‘Disbursements’ these are third party payments such as Ministers fee’s , Crematorium fees or Cemetery fees that we would make on your behalf, and as they are not our charges, they are the only part of our plans that are subject to any change.

We can provide plans for a simple funeral to plans with one or more limousines, or a personalised plan tailored to your exact needs by you. With any plan you can include personal wishes you would like fulfilled. You can pay for the plan in full or we can offer you easy payment options, please contact us for more information or click on the Golden Charter logo for their website.

Pre-arranging a funeral

When you feel you want to, you can start to think about a few things that will help you tailor the funeral service/ceremony which we can arrange and provide for you. We are here to help you every step of the way, so as to ensure the funeral service/ceremony is that of a respectful and dignified one to reflect the life of your loved one.

During our meeting we will sit together and gently talk to you about you loved one to enable us to get a picture of the person they were, we can then advise you on the different services we offer to arrange a funeral fitting to the life that has been led.

We will also advise you of all costs and disbursements for the arrangements we would have spoken with you about, you will then be given a hand written estimate at this time. When the arrangements have been confirmed and agreed we will send you a letter of confirmation including timings for the cortege, along with all the other details arranged. Included will be two copies of a typed estimate of costs and disbursements, one is for your records and the other we ask to be kindly signed and return to us prior to the funeral for our records. If the final account is going to be sent to a solicitor or bank, we ask that you inform us of of their name and address and another copy will be sent to you for your records.

“We believe the very smallest of detail can make the biggest of differences.”
