Why Plan Ahead?

Bereavement is a time of great stress for loved ones. Why not help take the burden off your loved ones by making your funeral arrangements in advance, in a calm and thoughtful atmosphere.


We are pleased to offer our clients a pre-paid funeral plan with Golden Charter, one of the largest funeral planning organisations in the country.


The plan allows you to specify your funeral arrangements and pay for everything in advance, thereby relieving your loved ones of the burden of this expense and giving you peace of mind.


The funeral plans can be tailor made to suit your individual requirements, taking care of all costs and giving you the opportunity to personalise your plan to meet your wishes, no matter how unusual your request.


The plan offers easy monthly payments, or a single payment, and will even ensure your thoughtfulness is remembered.

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 our 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.  

At John Stoddart & Sons, we work in partnership with Golden Charter to provide you with a safe and reliable way to plan ahead. As one of the UK’s largest funeral plan providers*, Golden Charter has helped 900,000 people make funeral provisions** so we’re completely confident in offering their plans to you.

Everyone has different needs when it comes to funeral planning, so we make sure the plans we offer are as flexible as possible. When you get in touch, we’ll be happy to discuss your funeral requirements and tailor a plan to suit you. Rest assured a plan from Golden Charter is available to all UK residents who are over 18, regardless of age or state of health.
