Golden Charter Funeral Plans

We understand that it’s hard to think about your funeral. But a Golden Charter Funeral Plan is a safe, simple way to plan ahead that can save your family worry and expense. It can also really help make things easier for your loved ones at a difficult time. And as our plan holders often tell us, that can be a big weight off your mind.

A funeral plan allows you to pay the cost of the funeral director’s services and disbursements such as cemetery and crematorium fees at today’s prices and gives you more control over your funeral arrangements. We believe it’s important for you to get the funeral you want, and for your family to receive a genuinely personal service when it really counts. When the time comes, just one phone call to us at our funeral home will activate your plan. Everything will then be carried out according to your wishes.

Taking out a plan for a loved one

If you wish, you can take out a funeral plan for someone else in your family. All you need to do is complete the ‘plan holder’s representative’ section of the application process. If you prefer not to discuss this with your loved one, we guarantee complete confidentiality.

Your investment is protected and fully guaranteed

We are proud to be registered with the Funeral Planning Authority and follow their Code of Practice. Also, Golden Charter are the only funeral plan provider recommended by the National Society of Allied & Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF). With a Golden Charter Funeral Plan, your payments are completely protected. Your money is paid into the Golden Charter Trust, which is run by an independent Board of Trustees who manage the Trust’s funds on behalf of our plan holders and safeguard future payments to funeral directors. When the time comes, the funeral director’s services and any disbursements included in your plan are guaranteed to be covered.

Lochaber’s only supplier of Golden Charter Funeral Plans

Manson & MacBeath Funeral Directors are Lochaber’s only supplier of Golden Charter Funeral plans. If you already hold a Golden Charter Funeral Plan with another funeral director and wish to transfer it to us we will give you a 100% price guarantee and make sure that you, nor your family are asked to pay a penny more towards your plan for the services it holds. This is including third party fee’s such cemetery and crematorium charges; most funeral directors won’t do this and demand you pay more at time of need.  It’s very simple and free to do and can be completed with us at our offices in Inverlochy.

We are exclusive members with Golden Charter meaning that your plan is fully protected, fully regulated and in the safe hands of one of the UK’s leading funeral plan providers.

There are some many different companies providing pre-paid funeral planning services today so be extra careful when dealing with smaller companies and private funeral planning organisations as most of the time they provide you with false information, are unregulated and your investment may not be protected. This is why you should always stick to the big companies like Golden Charter to give you complete peace of mind. Make sure you know who your handing your money over to and always check the small print. If you are worried about an existing plan you may have from another company and want some reassurance please contact us and we can investigate it further for you.
