Planning Your Funeral The Independent Way

A Guarantee That Covers All Our Services

No matter how much our services may rise in cost, once your plan is in place, neither you nor your loved ones will be asked for a penny more. It’s a guarantee that your family will be spared what could be a financial worry

There are some costs that we are obliged to pay on your behalf. These third party costs include the charges of cemeteries or crematoria and the fees of clergy or officiants. The amount of this expenditure is not within our control and may require a further payment at the time.

Protection Against Rising Funeral Costs

In 2004, an average funeral cost around £1,920. Research shows the average cost in the UK is now £4,417 – an increase of 130% in 16 years.

If this trend continues, the average cost for a funeral in 2025 will be £6,713*. We guarantee that, as long as your plan is paid for, there’ll be nothing more to pay for your funeral director’s services included in the plan.

A Sound Financial Decision

When you take out an Independent Way plan, your money is protected. You select how you wish to pay for your plan and, depending on your choice, your money is paid into the Golden Charter Trust or to one of the UK’s leading life assurance companies.

Your money grows and, when the time comes, we receive the payment, including any growth, and use this money to provide the agreed services to your family. No matter how much costs have risen, your loved ones will not be asked for a penny more for the services included within your plan.


Our Golden Charter Funeral Plans help to ensure there are arrangements in place for the future. Taking out a prepaid plan will put your mind at ease that all has been arranged in advance. Our experienced funeral directors in Newport sell a range of affordable plans from Golden Charter.

Once you have a prepaid funeral plan, you can be sure that the burden of rising costs won’t be passed down to your family. We can help you select the right arrangements to suit your budget and needs, whether you’re looking for a low-cost service or prefer to opt for a more extravagant option, we can help you pick the perfect one for you.

We often get asked what a funeral plan is. Our plans are a way of ensuring that when you or a loved one passes away, their funeral service will be paid for and entirely arranged already.

Choose The Perfect Prepaid Funeral Plan

Our caring team in Newport can help you choose the best option from either the Simple Way, the Traditional Way or the Exclusive Way. Whichever prepayment plan you choose, they all guarantee to cover the director’s services, including the burial or cremation, regardless of how much these costs rise in the future.

The Simple Way


Our lowest priced option, covering essential funeral director’s services plus an allowance towards third party costs. 

Our Simple Way funeral plan is an affordable way of giving your loved one the send off they deserve. Including the provision of our professional services as well as a plain veneered coffin, transport, use of our chapel of rest and other services.

The Traditional Way


If you want a funeral that goes a little bit further, this plan also includes a limousine and a high-quality coffin*.

Incorporating more of our services & including the option for a panelled veneered coffin, the Traditional Way funeral plan we offer is a more comprehensive pre-paid funeral package to give you peace of mind that when the time comes, our team will sort everything out for you. Giving your loved ones the time they need to grieve.

The Exclusive Way


Our most comprehensive option, this plan includes two limousines as well as a superior coffin, often chosen for burials.*

With the option of a solid wood coffin and access to more of our funeral services, the Exclusive Way funeral plan offers loved ones a much more comprehensive package that includes access to our limousines amongst other additional options.

What Funeral Costs Do I Need To Cover?

As well as the director’s services, which are guaranteed to be covered as per your plan, there are other costs you need to consider:

Third Party Funeral Costs

These are essential costs, such as local authority burial or cremation fees and officiant or minister fees. They are outside the control of your director but will be paid by them, to the third parties, at the time.

All three plans include a £940 allowance towards third party costs. Only if these costs were to increase by more than the growth of your plan might there be more to pay at the time of the service.

As an additional benefit, when you pay for your plan by a single payment or over 12 months, for an additional £100, you can choose to guarantee that third party costs will be covered if you die within 5 years from when your plan is fully paid. Please refer to the Key Features document for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions

One advantage of paying early is that if the cost rises in the future, you are protected from inflation. This makes it a great way to ensure that you get the service you deserve without any additional cost.

This really depends on your needs and your budget. All of our plans cover the cost of the burial or cremation as well as the funeral director’s services with a budget for third party costs. Contact us for more information, 01633 259225.

Golden Charter Works by locking in the price at the time of setting up your plan. This means that the price cannot be increased later down the line, saving your loved ones from covering any costs themselves. Contact us for our experienced advisors to offer more information.

Pre-paying for your funeral ensures your ceremony is planned ahead of time and paid for meaning your family don’t need to do anything. They also mean that the price you pay is fixed so you don’t pay inflated prices in the future.

We offer only Golden Chartered Plans, meaning that the cost of your service is covered when you buy directly with us. Our plans also include a subsidiary for third party costs too, depending on how you tailor it. Contact us for more information on 01633 259 225.
