About Us

Everyone at Golden Charter and the independent funeral directors we work with believe we have a responsibility to go the  extra mile for our customers.

We make sure it’s not only the departed who are cared for, but also those who are left behind. When the time comes, your client’s nominated independent funeral director will be there to provide comfort, support and practical help.

It means you can be confident your client’s family will receive a truly personal service  when it matters most.
