Knowing the funeral director's fees are met in full - gives me peace of mind
When you purchase one of our pre-paid plans, we guarantee that the funeral services stipulated in your plan will be met in full, when the time comes. If there are additional costs that may need to be paid, we will tell you this.
All Golden Leaves funeral plan funds are held in the Golden Leaves Trust, which manages the funds to achieve stable long-term growth. The Trust is overseen independently by a board of trustees and regulated in compliance with The Financial Services & Markets Act 2001. The fund is annually, independently audited and subject to strict actuarial reporting to ensure that it remains solid, stable, and above all, completely secure.
Your Golden Leaves Plan covers 100% of the funeral services specified in your plan. However, in some cases, your family, your estate or executor may be asked for an additional contribution towards ‘disbursements’ (for example; payments to third parties such as cemetery, crematorium fees, medical fees or musicians, if you relocate to another country other than the one you purchased your plan in) if their prices have risen beyond the increase in the Retail Price Index.
For example, our repatriation plan provides only a contribution towards costs of returning the deceased to the UK and a UK funeral so there may be additional costs that must be paid by your estate or next-of-kin.
Golden Leaves Ltdat the forefront of providers
You know you’re being looked after by a historic and trusted brand.
Since pre-paid funeral planning was introduced to the UK in 1984, Golden Leaves Ltd has been at the forefront of providers. We were founding members of The National Association for Pre-paid Funeral Plans and The Funeral Planning Authority (FPA), which monitored the marketing, financial and service provisions of the plan providers that it regulated. Since July 2022, Golden Leaves Ltd has been authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, which is now the regulator for the funeral planning industry in the UK.
We’d like you to be assured that with Golden Leaves, your arrangements are totally secure. Every funeral director appointed to provide services for a Golden Leaves plan must first satisfy a number of stringent requirements, including a demonstration of outstanding service records in their local community. They must also be affiliated with relevant accredited associations such as The National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD) and/or The Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF).
