We know how hard it is to lose a loved one, and the importance of saying goodbye. We’ve been arranging funerals for many years and work with you to ensure everything is carried out to your wishes.
From the coffin and transport to the service, flowers and registration of the death, we use our knowledge and experience to help and ensure everything is arranged for you.
We will help with all aspects of funeral arrangements including the placing of an announcement in the paper or radio to arranging the minister of your faith, humanist or celebrant for your choice of service.
We have an immaculate Mercedes fleet for that final journey but can arrange other dignified transport including a horse-drawn carriage for your funeral transport, if that is your wish.
A funeral plan is an easy way to arrange the funeral you want in advance. A plan allows you to specify your wishes and pay for the funeral director’s services included in your plan. As customers often tell us, that can bring peace of mind to you and your family. A plan from Golden Charter also includes an allowance towards third party costs. These are essential, non-funeral director services such as the cremation or burial fees, plus the minister or officiant’s fee to perform the service. The value of the allowance included in your plan may grow over time. There will only be more to pay at the time of the funeral if the third party costs exceed the allowance when you buy your plan, or if the costs increase by more than the growth of your plan.
