Our Funeral Directors

We are incredibly proud to say we are owned by a network of over 700 local independent funeral directors and we represent over 3,000 independent funeral directors throughout the UK.  Each one is available to extend a comforting arm whenever it is needed.  Our allocations process allows your clients the chance to choose a funeral director near to them. We will make every effort to allocate their plan to their chosen funeral director where possible.

Many years ago, the majority of funeral directors were family-owned, passionately serving families within their community in any way they could. However, in recent years, there have been changes with larger chains buying out local funeral director’s businesses when senior members retire, often keeping only the name of the business.

This has led to many customers placing their trust in what they believe to be their local, family-run funeral director business however in reality, this isn’t always the case. The good news is, by choosing Golden Charter, you can rest safe in the knowledge your clients’ arrangements will be provided by a local, independent funeral director.
