Knowing that the funeral director's fees are met in full gives me peace of mind - I can rest assured I have it covered.
The Golden Leaves Guarantee
When you purchase one of our pre-paid plans, we guarantee that the funeral director’s fees will be met in full, when the time comes.
All Golden Leaves Funeral Plan funds are held in the Golden Leaves Trust, which manages the funds to achieve stable long-term growth. The Trust is overseen independently by a board of trustees and regulated in compliance with The Financial Services & Markets Act 2001. The fund is annually, independently audited and subject to strict actuarial reporting to ensure that it remains solid, stable, and above all, completely secure.
Your Golden Leaves Plan covers 100% of the funeral director’s services specified in your plan. However, in some cases, your family, your estate or executor may be asked for an additional contribution towards ‘disbursements’ (usually payments to third parties such as cemetery or crematorium fees, medical fees or musicians, for example ) if their prices have risen beyond the increase in the Retail Price Index.
You know you’re being looked after by a historic and trusted brand.
Since pre-paid funeral planning was introduced to the UK in 1984, Golden Leaves Ltd has been at the forefront of providers. We were founding members of The National Association for Pre-paid Funeral Plans and The Funeral Planning Authority (FPA) which monitors the marketing, financial and service provisions of the plan providers that it regulates.
We’d like you to be assured that with Golden Leaves, your arrangements are totally secure. Every funeral director appointed to provide services for a Golden Leaves Plan must first satisfy a number of stringent requirements, including a demonstration of outstanding service records in their local community. They must also be affiliated with relevant accredited associations such as The National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD) and/or The Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF).
