Why Choose A Funeral Plan?


At BW: Funeral Directors Ltd, we will tailor-make your Funeral Plan to suit your individual requirements. A Funeral Plan allows you to arrange your own funeral in advance - detailing your personal wishes. It also allows you to pay in full, the Funeral Director’s Services, which can bring peace of mind to both you and your family.


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 conduct the service. The value of the allowance included in your plan may grow over time.


There will only be more to pay at the time of the funeral, if the third party costs exceed the allowance when you originally paid for your plan, or if the costs increase by more than the growth of your plan.

At BW: Funeral Directors Ltd, we work in partnership with Golden Charter, to provide you with a simple way to plan ahead. As one of the UK’s largest funeral plan providers (1), Golden Charter has helped over 900,000 people to plan ahead (2), so we’re completely confident in offering their plans to you.

When you get in touch, we’ll be happy to discuss your funeral requirements and tailor a plan to suit you.
