A funeral plan can offer a real alternative to saving for your future funeral costs

What are funeral plans?

Purchasing a funeral plan enables you to pre-plan, pre-design and pre-pay all your end of life services in advance.

In doing so, you enjoy peace of mind and key benefits; purchasing a funeral plan helps remove the emotional burden and much of the financial worry from your next of kin at a time in their lives when they are least able to cope. A funeral plan enables you to fix the cost at today’s prices and also enables you to specify precisely what funeral you’d wish for, as opposed to leaving your next of kin wondering which send off you would have liked.

Secure the funeral you desire while protecting your loved ones from the emotional and financial costs.

Why do we need funeral plans?

Having a funeral plan is the best possible opportunity to put your affairs in order, and protect those closest to you from the stress and expense of arranging your funeral.

These decisions are clearly dependent not only on one’s financial situation but frequently based on personal choice, circumstance and lifestyle considerations.

By selecting a Golden Leaves funeral plan, you will be able to shield yourself from rising funeral costs and take comfort in knowing that your funeral won’t be a burden to your family and friends at an upsetting and difficult time. Planning your own funeral in advance will also ensure that your preferences are respected and followed as closely as possible. We want you to feel that you are in the safest hands if you choose a Golden Leaves funeral plan to place your trust in.

Why pre-pay?

Pre-paying for your funeral using a Golden Leaves funeral plan not only takes a weight off of your own shoulders but also makes it easier for those you leave behind. A plan like this proposes a better financial option than putting money in a savings account to pay for future funeral costs. Since 2004, funeral costs have soared- but interest paid on savings accounts has remained very low. We offer a range of funeral plans that can be purchased through a direct payment or through monthly instalments, whichever is more suitable for you.

Making funeral arrangements can be especially difficult for those who are grieving the loss of someone special, particularly when faced with the rising inflation of funeral costs- our Golden Leaves funeral plans offer you the chance to create your own unique plan in advance, and at a fixed price.
