save your family worry and expense.

The Independent Way Plus Funeral Plan
from only £2,450

For many people, planning their funeral has become an established way of looking at the future, just like making a Will. A plan can save your family worry and expense, and help make things easier for your loved ones at a difficult time.

More than a million people in Great Britain have taken out a funeral plan, over 400,000 of them with Golden Charter. Usually, they have known the grief of bereavement and don’t want their families to go through the stress of making arrangements. Many have established a relationship of trust with their local family funeral director. Who better to advise them on such a sensitive topic and assist them with all the details?

We believe that the Independent Way Plus Funeral Plan, which is available only through independent funeral directors such as ourselves, offers you significant advantages over other plans. The following pages explain the reasons why.

Why Choose Our Funeral Plan?

Planning your funeral the Independent Way

With the Independent Way Plus plan, we will make sure that your loved ones will be spared much of the stress and uncertainty of organising a funeral. You’ll have specified every detail in advance and taken care of all the costs that are within our control. Plus, you have the option to include a Simple Will within your plan to make sure that all your wishes are known.

A guarantee that covers all our services

No matter how much our services may rise in cost in years to come, once your plan is fully in place, neither you nor your loved ones will be asked for a penny more for them. It’s a guarantee that gives you peace of mind. You can be assured that your family will be spared what could be a financial worry.

There are some costs that we are obliged to pay on your behalf. These third party costs include the charges of cemeteries and crematoria, as well as the fees of clergy or officiants and the costs of newspaper notices and memorials. The amount of this expenditure is not within our control and may require a further payment at the time of need.

A sound financial decision

When you take out an Independent Way Plus plan, you have the reassurance that your money is protected. You select how you wish to pay for your plan and, depending on your choice, your money is paid into the Golden Charter Trust or to one of the UK’s leading life assurance companies.

Your money grows and, when the time comes, we receive the payment, including any growth, and use this money to provide the agreed services to your family. No matter how much costs have risen in the intervening period, your loved ones will not be asked for a penny more for the guaranteed services included within your plan.

Optional Will included in you plan

When arranging your funeral plan, it’s a good idea to make sure you have a Will in place and that’s it’s up to date- that’s why you have the option of a Simple Will to be included within your plan. A Will lets you safeguard the important things in your life, for the people you love. It allows you to specify who inherits your money, property, possessions, personal mementos or charitable donations. Even if you already have a Will, it’s important that it reflects current circumstances. If you already have an up to date Will, you may wish to gift the Will to a friend or family member.
