There comes a stage in everyones lives when its only natural to think about when we will no longer be here. We think about our loved ones and what to leave them. There are some things, however, that we do not want to leave them. These include the burden of expensive funeral costs and the worry of deciding on the funeral arrangements.
As independent funeral directors we have been recommending Golden Charter Funeral Plans for the last 21 years. More than 750,000 people in Great Britain have planned their funerals, almost 250,000 of them with Golden Charter, the UKs leading independent plan provider.
