5 reasons why more people than ever are planning ahead

A funeral plan is a safe, simple way to plan ahead and help secure peace of mind, for you and your family. And whatever your reason for planning ahead, with the personal care and attention of The Martins Funeral Directors, you’re in the best of hands – that’s a promise.

  1. You’ll fix your funeral director’s costs at today’s prices
    And that’s important. You might be surprised to hear that the average cost of a funeral has gone up by 55% in less than 10 years1. It means there’s no guarantee that, when the time comes, your savings or over 50s insurance policy will cover the cost of your funeral.

    Nobody wants their family to face money worries in the future. A funeral plan lets you fix the cost of the funeral director’s services covered by your plan at today’s prices. Even if prices rise in the future, once your plan is paid for2 you’ll have the reassurance of knowing there’s nothing more to pay for these services – guaranteed.

  2. Help protect your family from worry and expense
    A plan isn’t just an easy way to beat rising prices. It’s also a chance to do something amazing for your family at a difficult time. With a plan in place you can help save your family from money worries or stressful decisions about funeral arrangements in the future. That could mean a lot to them – and be a real comfort to you now, too.
  3. Arrange your funeral, your way
    One of the best things about a Golden Charter plan is that you can choose the send off you want. When the time comes, everything will be taken care of by us. It means you and your family can be certain of a truly personal service when it matters most.
  4. You’re in the hands of a trusted local expert
