Funeral plans

Whether you choose to plan and pay in advance, or just to plan, deciding on the main details now is a thoughtful way to save your family from uncertainty later on.

Why get a funeral plan?

Funeral plans offer a number of benefits that include getting what you want, giving your family peace of mind and fixing the cost of your funeral director’s services at today’s prices.

  • Get what you want

    Pre-planning your funeral means you get to choose every last detail and make sure your loved ones celebrate your life in exactly the way you want.

  • Take care of your family

    Enjoy the peace of mind of knowing you have helped save your family from the extra heartache and worry of making tough decisions after you’re gone.

  • Save money

    All of Reynolds funeral director services included in your plan can be fixed at today’s prices, such as private chapel of rest and hearse. A plan from Golden Charter also includes an allowance towards third party costs. These are essential, non-funeral director services such as the cremation or burial fees, plus the minister or officiant’s fee to perform the service. Golden Charter plans protect your money in a trust that allows growth and aims to cover any increases.

  • No barriers to acceptance

    Rest assured a plan from Golden Charter is available to all UK residents who are over 18, regardless of age or state of health.

Types of funeral plan

Whichever type of plan you choose, once in place, a copy of your wishes is kept on file and all it takes is a single phone call to get the arrangements underway.

1. Pre-planned funerals

A pre-planned funeral allows you to plan your funeral with us in advance. We can discuss as few or as many of your wishes as you like. You can cover the basics and let your family take care of the other arrangements, or you can specify everything down to the last detail.

2. Pre-paid funerals

A pre-paid funeral plan will appeal to anyone keen to get their financial affairs in order early. All your wishes are planned out and paid for in advance. It locks in our funeral director services at today’s prices.

The Golden Charter funeral plans we offer also include an allowance toward third party costs which are essential, non-funeral director services such as the cremation or burial fees, plus the minister or officiant’s fee to perform the service. These costs are out of our control. However, the allowance included in your plan may grow over time and there would only be more to pay at the time of the funeral if the third party costs exceed the allowance when you buy your plan, or if the costs increase by more than the growth of your plan.

We offer pre-paid funeral plans from Golden Charter, one of the UK’s largest funeral plan providers. Jump to footnote 1. They are tailored to suit your wishes and can be paid for in a number of different ways.

Why get a plan with Reynolds?

When you plan with Reynolds, you can rest knowing that your loved ones will also have unrivalled support and guidance in their time of loss.

We arranged our son's funeral with a chap called John and he couldn't do enough to ensure our needs were met. On the day of the funeral he was very attentive, respectful and caring (which he had been right the way through), he carefully guided us and helped through our very traumatic and emotional time. We cannot thank John of Reynolds Bognor Regis enough.

I would like to once again thank your staff for their kind support during this hard time. They were so helpful when they helped us with Dad's funeral and have given us the same compassionate service when sorting out his grave stone. Your staff answered many questions and listened and offered support when I felt unsure and upset. I will always be grateful for the support your company has given me and wish you all the best.

We’ve used Reynold’s in the past and couldn’t fault their services for our loss this year. We have a fairly large family yet all our needs weren’t just met with great sensitivity but smooth organisation, support and respect all the way. The day went perfectly too despite the snow! Thank you to all at Reynolds.

JM - Bognor Regis

For five generations, the Reynolds family has been caring for bereaved families across West Sussex. In that time, we’ve learnt a lot about how to help people say a fitting goodbye to their loved ones. So whether you need to plan a funeral for a loved one, or plan ahead for yourself, we’d be honoured to help you.
