Planning for later life is never an easy thing to do, but it can be comforting and reassuring to know that you’ve taken care of your arrangements, including your funeral.
Pre-planned and pre-paid funeral plans
If you have ever had to arrange a funeral for someone, you’ll know just how much there is to decide and how difficult it can be. Many people never get around to talking to their families about the kind of funeral they would like. If you want to make sure that relatives are free from making many of the decisions, then Reynolds Funeral Service can help you with a pre-planned or pre-paid funeral plan.
A pre-planned funeral allows you to plan your funeral in advance. With a pre-planned funeral we will discuss as much or as little with you as you feel appropriate. You may wish to give us basic details and let your family or friends take care of the other arrangements at the time. The payment for your funeral will then come from your estate. All details discussed will be put into a written plan and a copy sent to you, Reynolds Funeral Service would also retain a copy on file.
A pre-paid funeral is one that has been planned and paid for in advance, ensuring that your family are not left with financial worries concerning payment of the account for the funeral arrangements. A funeral plan will appeal to those people keen to put their affairs in order. All pre-paid funeral plans will be confirmed in writing with a copy being retained on file at Reynolds Funeral Service. Your pre-paid funeral plan can be paid in a single payment or by monthly instalments.
Getting a plan in place
If you would like to proceed with either a pre-planned or pre-paid funeral, please contact us to arrange an appointment either at one of our offices or in the comfort of your own home.

A funeral plan with reassurance
It’s a good feeling, knowing things are taken care of in advance. And with a funeral plan from Golden Charter, you can do just that. It’s a convenient way to plan ahead, by arranging your funeral now – and just like making a Will, once you’ve done it you can simply get on with enjoying life. As well as giving you reassurance and peace of mind, it means you’re sparing your loved ones distress at a difficult time.
First-class service from your local independent funeral director
Golden Charter is the UK’s largest independent funeral plan provider and over 400,000 people have chosen to take out a plan with them. Because they only represent independent funeral directors like us, it means you’re in the hands of a trusted local expert. Unlike some funeral planning companies who restrict your choices and limit you to ‘set’ plans, we’ll take the time to discuss your requirements in detail and help tailor a plan to suit you. Whether you want a traditional church service, a more intimate affair at one of our own chapels of rest, a horse-drawn hearse or a vehicle unique to your personality we can help you to create that plan.
A sound financial decision
As well as complete peace of mind, paying in advance for your funeral is a shrewd financial move. By fixing our funeral director’s services at today’s prices you’re getting good value. Mainly due to third-party costs which are outside of our control, funeral costs have risen by 80% over the past nine years (Mintel 2013). And as we all know, at the present time it’s unlikely that savings accounts or life assurance products could keep up with that.
The Golden Charter funeral plan guarantee
We guarantee that there will be nothing more to pay for our services, no matter how much they may rise in the future. Unlike many over-50s life policies, a funeral plan from Golden Charter offers protection against inflation by guaranteeing that your plan will fund the full cost of these services. It’s a sensible and thoughtful way to provide for your family when the time comes.
