Pre-Paid Funeral Plans
Funeral Plans From Golden Charter
Thinking about your own funeral is never an easy thing to do. However, more and more people want to ease the future burden on their family or friends by arranging and paying for their own funeral in advance.
Funeral costs in the UK are rising every year. While the average cost of a funeral in 2004 was £1,920, today it’s £4,271, an increase of 122%. According to the 2018 SunLife Cost of Dying Report, Golden Charter estimate costs could be more than £7,500 in 10 years’ time. A Golden Charter funeral plan offers an easy way to pay for your funeral service at a cost that is fixed at current prices.
So what does this mean exactly? If you decide to take out a funeral plan, you can ensure all your wishes will be carried out; from your choice of coffin material and style, to the cost of any floral tributes and newspaper notices.
It is entirely up to you whether you pay in full, or spread the cost over a period of between 2 and 30 years, depending on your current age. Additional charges apply, you must be 78 or younger to sign-up to a plan and no older than 80 at the end of your chosen payment term.
