Funeral costs in the UK are rising every year.

While the average cost of a funeral in 2004 was £1,920, today it's £4,078*. That's an increase of 112% - well above the general rate of inflation. At this rate, in another 10 years, the average cost of a funeral could be more than £7,000. With funeral costs rising every year*, a Golden Charter Funeral Plan offers an easy way to pay for your funeral director's service at a cost that's fixed at current prices.

At a stressful time, it could help your family avoid difficult decisions – and prevent any financial worries over how to pay for the funeral costs

That’s why it pays to act now. With a plan from Golden Charter, once fully paid, no matter how much the price of your funeral director’s services increase in the future, your family will have nothing more to pay for those services included in your plan – guaranteed.
