At Golden Leaves, we’re dedicated to offering the best funeral plans that are tailored to your needs and requirements. We have four types of funeral packages: Copper, Zinc, Silver and Gold. This page shows the differences between them and helps you to compare funeral costs, so you can choose the right funeral for you and your family.

Funeral Director Professional Fees:

The professional fees are for the services carried out by funeral directors to conduct either a cremation, or burial funeral. Your allocated funeral directors will assist with all documentation required for a funeral to take place and make the relevant bookings at either the crematorium or cemetery.

They will ensure that when the time comes the planholder is taken into their care and looked after until the day of their funeral. Please take a look at the plan comparison table to the right which shows the services that are included in each of the Golden Leaves funeral plans.

Third Party Fees:

These are costs for essential, non-funeral director services required to carry out a cremation or burial. Funeral directors cannot control these costs and these fees need to be paid at the time of the funeral. These costs are paid by us or by the selected funeral director to other suppliers or professionals to carry out funeral services.

If your plan does not guarantee these costs but includes a contribution only, please note that your estate or next of kin may have to pay the balance if this is more than this amount.
