Knowing that the entire cost of the Cremation funeral is completely covered - Giving me peace of mind
The Golden Leaves Guarantee
When you purchase one of our selected funeral plans we guarantee that the complete cost of your cremation funeral will be met in full, when the time comes. Some plans also carry our new Golden Leaves Disbursement Guarantee too.
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. In some cases the plan will carry the new Golden Leaves Disbursement Guarantee which also ensures your Cremation funeral disbursement costs are guaranteed too.
However, if you have opted for the limited Zinc Plan 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 will also preferably 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).
