Funeral costs have been increasing year on year. You might be surprised to hear that, while the average cost of a funeral in 2004 was £1,920, today it’s £4,2711. That’s an increase of 122% – and well above inflation.
A Golden Charter Funeral Plan locks the funeral director’s costs included in your plan at today’s prices. And the sooner you take out a plan, the greater the saving could be.

Do something amazing for your family
With the rise in funeral costs outstripping inflation and interest rates, there’s no guarantee that when the time comes, your bank or building society savings will cover the cost of your funeral.
Nobody wants their family to face money worries in the future. A funeral plan lets you fix the cost of the funeral director’s services in the plan at today’s prices.
No matter how much prices rise in the figure, once your plan is paid for, you’ll have the reassurance of knowing there’ll be nothing more to pay for these services – guaranteed.

Your money is safe and secure
With a Golden Charter Funeral Plan your payments are protected. Your money is paid into the Golden Charter Trust which is run by a Board of Trustees. The Trust is completely independent of Golden Charter.
The Trustees are chosen for their skills and experience, and safeguard the payments made by our plan holders. They make sure all future payments can be made which means we can guarantee the funeral director’s services included in your plan will be delivered at the time they are required.
