Your wishes are special and with Golden Charter, you can decide exactly what you want. Although the plans range from basic to the most comprehensive, your personal requests can be included in any one. The personalisation option will make sure all your wishes are honoured.
Every Golden Charter Plan includes an allowance, as detailed in the current application form, towards the fees for burial or cremation and where applicable, payments to doctors or the clergy.
If the current costs in your area differ to those allowed any difference can be adjusted by using our unique Personalisation Option.
Our plan prices do not include the purchase of a grave. Please bear in mind that the current cost and availability of a grave varies considerably throughout the country and therefore special arrangements may have to be made.
The allowance is towards the opening of a new of existing grave. The purchase of a grave and any monumental work should be arranged separately.
Each plan makes a provision for the fees of clergy attending at the cremation or cemetery.
Any fees for us of the place of worship, heating, lighting or services of an organist or choir where applicable can be added as a Personalisation Option.
Once you have selected your plan, all you have to do is decide how you wish to pay - either with a single payment or by flexible instalments.
Once your plan is fully paid, we'll send you a Certificate of Entitlement to funeral services and a membership card, which should be kept in a safe place; a copy of the Certificate of Entitlement to give to a friend or relative for information.
If paying by instalments your application will be acknowledged and a provisional membership card issued.
