Death is still such a taboo subject for the British. Whether it’s our own death or the death of a loved one, we don’t want to think about it. However the reality is, it can be made more bearable by having a plan in place.
Less than 1% of people who planned funerals for their loved ones in the last four years knew all of their wishes. By having a funeral plan in place, our clients can have peace of mind and also provide their loved ones with extra comfort at an already difficult time.
Your local independent funeral director
We are incredibly proud to say we work with Golden Charter who are owned by a network of over 700 local independent funeral directors and represent over 3,000 independent funeral directors throughout the UK. Each one is available to extend a comforting arm whenever it is needed. That means you have the best opportunity to choose a funeral director near to you.
Many years ago, the majority of funeral directors were family-owned, passionately serving families within their community in any way they could. However, in recent years, there have been changes with larger chains buying out local funeral director’s businesses when senior members retire, often keeping only the name of the business.
This has led to many customers placing their trust in what they believe to be their local, family-run funeral director business BUT in reality, this isn’t always the case. The good news is, by choosing Golden Charter, you can rest safe in the knowledge your arrangements will be provided by a local, independent funeral director.
