At Green Oak Funeral Services we provide Golden Charter Funeral Plans
For many people, planning their funeral has become an established way of looking at the future, just like making a will.
More than a million people in Great Britain have taken out a funeral plan, over 420,000 of them with Golden Charter. Usually, they have known the grief of bereavement and don’t want their families to go through the stress of making arrangements.
Many have established a relationship of trust with their local family funeral director. Who better to advise them on such a sensitive topic and assist them with all the details?
We believe that the Independent Way Funeral Plan, which is available only through independent funeral directors such as ourselves, offers you significant advantages over other plans.
Planning your funeral the Independent Way.
With the Independent Way Plan, we will make sure that your loved ones will be spared much of the stress and uncertainty of organising a funeral. You’ll have specified every detail in advance and taken care of all the costs that are within our control ands a guarantee that covers all our services.
No matter how much our services may rise in cost in the years to come, once your plan is fully in place, neither you nor your loved ones will be asked for a penny more for them. It’s a guarantee that gives you peace of mind. You can be assured that your family will be spared what could be a financial worry.
There are some costs that are beyond our control that we are obliged to pay on your behalf. These third party costs include the charges of cemeteries and crematoria as well as fees for clergy and the costs of newspaper notices. The amount of this expenditure is not within our control and may require a further payment at the time of need.
A sound financial decision
When you take out an independent way plan, you have the reassurance that your money is protected. You select how you wish to play for your plan and, depending on your choice, your money is paid into the Golden Charter Trust or to one of the UK’s leading life assurance companies.
Your money grows and, when the time comes, we receive the payment, including any growth, and use this money to provide the agreed services to your family. No matter how much costs have risen in the intervening period your loved ones will not be asked for a penny more for the guaranteed services included with your plan.
