A recent report by Sun Life Direct suggests that funeral costs have risen by 61% in the last 7 years with total average costs now above £7000 when funeral costs, memorial and probate are included. With the cost of funerals rising every year more people are thinking about planning for the future. It is possible to take the financial burden away from your family by taking out a pre-paid funeral with us because once paid for, our fees are guaranteed to be covered, however long you live. Plans are available from £2970 please see the table below for details. Many insurance policies stipulate that you must pay monthly premiums for the rest of your life, stop paying and the funeral service will not be supplied and no money will be refunded. This is not the case with our funeral plans, once they are paid you will never be asked for any more money towards the funeral director’s fees. We studied all the funeral plans available on the market today and decided to offer only Golden Leaves plans because, in our opinion, they offer the best combination of service and value for money.
