Funeral Planning

Many people are choosing to arrange, and pay, for funerals in advance. Plans offered by Church View Funeral Services Ltd are in conjunction with either Golden Charter or Help the Aged.

Unlike most funeral plans, we work with you to create an individual plan that is specifically tailored to your needs; it may be as elaborate, or as simple, as you wish. Payment may be made in full or by installments.

Arranging, and paying, for a funeral in advance is seen by many as a thoughtful way of lifting some of the immediate burden of bereavement; not only have all your wishes been recorded, but financial provision has been made for payment of the funeral.

Please do not hesitate to ask for further information, should you so require. Our staff will be pleased to explain our plans to you.

Guarantee that covers all our services
No matter how much our services may rise in cost in years to come, neither you nor your family will be asked for a penny more for them. You can be assured that your family will be spared what could be a financial worry.

There are some costs which we are obliged to pay on your behalf. Known as disbursements, they include the charges of cemeteries and crematoria, as well as doctor's fees for cremation certificates, the fees of clergy or humanist officiants, and the costs of newspaper notices, floral tributes and memorials. The amount of this expenditure is beyond our control and may require a further payment at the time of need.

We'll help you personalise your plan
With the Independent Way Plan, we will ensure that your loved ones are spared much of the burden of organising a funeral. You'll have specified every detail in advance and taken care of all the costs that are within our control.

Many personal decisions have to be made. And you can be sure we'll carry them out to the letter in association with Golden Charter, the UK's leading independent funeral plan provider. No matter how simple, elaborate or unusual the request, we'll ensure all your requests are honoured.

Before purchasing a funeral plan it is always wise to consult the funeral director you intend to use because some funeral plan companies restrict your choice of funeral director.

Be remembered through the Woodland Trust
A free feature of every plan - unique to Golden Charter Almost every Golden Charter plan holder we've spoken to thinks this is a beautiful way to be remembered. When you purchase a plan, a tree will be planted on your behalf by the Woodland Trust, Britain's largest woodland conservation charity.

Almost 150,000 trees such as oak, ash and beech have been planted through this exclusive arrangement.
