Funeral Plans

There comes a time in all our lives when it is natural to consider our own funerals and how best to prepare for them. By opting for a Golden Leaves pre paid funeral plan with Bristol Funeral Directors, your local family operated funeral directors, you can lessen the burden on your loved ones of making or paying for funeral arrangements, since you will have specified everything in advance with a trusted local family operated and managed funeral director.

A funeral plan enables you to make a decision now regarding the funeral arrangements you wish to be carried out, pay for them at today’s prices and relax in the sure knowledge that everything will be conducted exactly as planned, by the funeral directors that you have selected.

You can be confident that your wishes will be honoured with care, attention and sensitive consideration thus saving your family any uncertainty about your wishes and helping with the worry of a financial burden at a time of stress. We will also advise them as how to proceed in order to register your death. This will bring peace of mind to both you and your relatives.

You can choose a funeral plan that guarantees the cost of our funeral directors' fees and third party costs or you can opt for a plan that includes our fees and a contribution to third party costs. If you choose a plan that includes a contribution there may be additional costs that your estate or next-of-kin will have to meet at time of need. You choose which works best for your needs and budget.

For four generations we have been privileged to serve many families within Bristol and the surrounding areas during their time of crisis and loss. We are here to help you as we have helped them. Do not hesitate in calling us if you require help or further information.

Working in partnership with Golden Leaves

Safe and Secure

A funeral plan is a secure way to pay for a funeral in advance. All plan funds received by Golden Leaves are held in the Golden Leaves Trust Ltd. The Trust conservatively managed with a range of investments selected to increase funds available to pay for the funerals in the future and will make sure the value of any plan continues to grow to cover the services guaranteed to be provided your funeral plan.

Golden Leaves Trust’s accounts are monitored annually by independent actuaries and are also independently audited. Your money can only be withdrawn when the time comes to pay for the funeral services or if you cancel the plan.

The Golden Leaves Trust is a separate legal entity from Golden Leaves Limited, with independent managing Trustees, so the funds are secure to cover funeral costs in the unlikely event that Golden Leaves Limited should cease to trade and your plan is transferred to another funeral plan provider.
