- Crematorium fees
- Cemetery fees
- Purchase of a grave plot
- Minister or Officiant’s fee
- Hire of a church or other venue
- Organist or soloist fee
- Memorial costs such as a headstone or the planting of a tree

As a Golden Charter customer, you’ll receive personalised plan documents, which include a summary of your plan, all of our details, your plan holder certificate and a personal membership card for you to carry in your purse or wallet.
We will also hold full details of your funeral plan. When the time comes, one phone call is all it takes to activate your plan and get the arrangements underway.
Payments for pre-paid funeral plans are all made directly to Golden Charter to ensure your funds are fully protected and properly invested. They offer a number of different payment options. How you choose to pay is up to you and may depend on your circumstances.
A one-off single payment for immediate cover.
12 monthly payment
Spread the cost with 12 monthly payments by Direct Debit at no extra charge.
Spread the cost over a longer period of between two and 30 years. Also payable by Direct Debit.
Fixed monthly payment
Pay a fixed monthly amount based on your choice of funeral plan and age at the time of application. Payable by Direct Debit for life or until the age of 90.
As well as covering the delivery of your funeral, there is a one-off administration fee of £249 which Golden Charter receives to cover the cost of setting up, managing and administering your funeral plan.
We are not financial advisors so cannot advise you on what you can afford or what the most suitable payment option might be for your circumstances. If you feel you need further advice, you should speak with a registered financial advisor before committing to a plan.
