Why choose a Pre Paid Funeral Plan?
A funeral plan is an easy way to arrange the funeral you want in advance. A plan allows you to specify your wishes and pay for the funeral director’s services included in your plan. As our 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.
At John Edwards Funeral Directors , we work in partnership with Golden Charter to provide you with a safe and reliable way to plan ahead. As one of the UK’s largest funeral plan providers*, Golden Charter has helped 900,000 people make funeral provisions** so we’re completely confident in offering their plans to you.
Payment options to suit you
With a Golden Charter funeral plan, you can pay for your plan in several ways. Spread the cost or make a one-off payment – simply choose the one that’s right for you. We will provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision.
As well as covering the delivery of your funeral as per the terms and conditions of your plan, your plan price includes a one-off £249 arrangement fee, which Golden Charter retains as a contribution towards setting up your funeral plan.
Your payments will be safe and secure in the Golden Charter Trust. With a Golden Charter funeral plan your payments are protected. Your money will be transferred and held in the Golden Charter Trust.
