An essential part of end of life planning
A Prepaid Funeral Plan from Dignity, the UK’s leading provider of pre-arranged funerals, lets you pay for your funeral in advance and at today’s price. It is a way of taking control of the unexpected, setting out the arrangements and limiting the costs by paying for the services included in the Funeral Plan upfront. It’s practical, sensible and should be an essential part of your financial end of life planning.
Whenever your Funeral Plan is needed, however much funeral costs have increased; it’s Dignity who guarantees there will be no more to pay for the services in the Plan.
Dignity is a financially stable company, with a long reliable history. It means that unlike some other providers, Dignity has the stature and capability to stand behind their guarantees even if times are difficult. Dignity has a nationwide network of more than 1,180 owned or approved funeral directors and 39 crematoria and you can be assured that they all deliver the same professional and caring service to the families they serve.

Please note funeral planning is not regulated by the FCA.
Below are a list of the Industry Recommendations & Approvals we have received.
The Funeral Planning Authority was created in response to Government legislation introduced to ensure proper protection of money paid by consumers for their pre-paid funeral plans. Customers purchasing a plan from a Registered Provider have the added reassurance that they do so from one of the most reputable companies in the industry, one which maintains high standards and properly protects its plan holders' funds.
The FPC represents the major sectors within the funeral planning profession and has a written Code of Conduct, which Golden Charter was instrumental in setting up.
The only plans recommended by the National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF)
More than 60 per cent of funerals in the UK are carried out by independent funeral directors. SAIF was established in 1989 to serve their interests and the needs of their clients.
