Beside you since 1867

Our family owned and run company, now in its 6th generation of family ownership, has been serving the community for over 150 years. Much has changed over this time, but our commitment to provide a professional yet compassionate service in times of bereavement, to those we are called upon to serve remains the same. For generations, we have been at the side of families at their most difficult times, offering calm reassurance and guidance, ensuring that their wishes are at the heart of everything we do and delivering a truly personal tribute to their loved one.

Pre-paid Funerals

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.
