The funeral service that caters for everyone’s needs


Pre-Payment Funeral Plans

The Safe and Simple Way to Plan Ahead for Your Funeral

We believe it is hugely important for you and your family to get the funeral you want and deserve to say goodbye to when you lose a loved one. At this very stressful time, it’s important to minimise financial pressure on your family and friends. Therefore, in association with Golden Charter, we can advise you on arranging and paying for your funeral in advance.

What are funeral payment plans?

A funeral payment plan is designed to help spread the cost of a funeral. Funerals can vary in expense, however in the UK the average funeral costs almost £4000 – at the time of writing. This can seem like an unachievable price to many people, which is why payment plans have come into being. At Alan Greenwood, in association with Golden Charter, we can explain a range of different pre-payment plans for you to choose from.

Can I take out a pre-payment plan for someone else?

If you wish, you are able to take out a pre-payment plan for someone else in your family. Our experienced employees can help and advise you throughout this process, offering support for you and your loved ones.

Why Choose Golden Charter Funeral Plan?

With a Golden Charter Funeral Plan, your payments are completely protected. Your money will be paid into a Golden Charter Trust, which is run by an independent board of trustees who manage the trust’s funds on behalf of our plan holders. All payments are safeguarded to funeral directors. When the time comes, the funeral directors’ services included in your plan are guaranteed to be covered.

Golden Charter are registered with the Funeral Planning Authority and follow their Code of Practice. Also, they are the only funeral plan provider recommended by the National Society of Allied & Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF).
