Funeral Costs

A compassionate and quality service at a fair price.

Funeral Options

Talking about death and funerals isn’t easy. And yet there are several very good reasons why having a funeral plan in place makes perfect sense – from an emotional, practical and financial point of view. From a traditional funeral, to something simpler, with a plan in place you can make sure you get the send-off you really want.

A plan allows you to specify your wishes and pay for the funeral director’s services included in your plan. As customers often tell us, that can bring peace of mind to you and your family. A plan from Golden Charter also includes an allowance towards third party costs. These are essential, non- funeral director services such as the cremation or burial fees, plus the minister or officiant’s fee to perform the service. The value of the allowance included in your plan may grow over time. There will only be more to pay at the time of the funeral if the third party costs exceed the allowance when you buy your plan, or if the costs increase by more than the growth of your plan.

At A.B. Taylor Funeral Services Ltd, we’re proud to partner with Golden Charter, one of the UKs’ leading funeral plan providers. * With a Golden Charter funeral plan you can choose us as your preferred funeral director. When the time comes, we’ll take care of your wishes locally with the utmost care and respect.

It means your Golden Charter funeral plan offers the best of both worlds – The reassurance of a leading plan provider and our personal care and service when it matters most. Rest assured a plan from Golden Charter is available to all UK residents regardless of age or state of health.

1.Full Range Of Funerals

Our family has always believed in providing compassionate and quality service at a fair price. When we arrange the funeral, we give a written estimate of our charges and the expenses we pay out.

We do not offer “packages” on our FULL RANGE OF FUNERALS. There are certain elements which are essential, but every funeral is different, and to the bereaved and to those arranging a funeral, some items are considered more important than others. For example  – cost; the choice of cemetery or crematorium, type of coffin or type of vehicle. We will listen to your requests, explain the various options and charges and give a written detailed estimate. Having said that, every funeral is unique, there is a common thread, so as a rough guideline for what many people consider a usual funeral arrangement.

3. Direct Cremation

We can provide this service for a cheaper charge but in our long experience, we have found that often the family and friends of the deceased have felt deeply upset at not being able to attend a funeral and say goodbye.

There is no viewing, the date, time and place of funeral are not published, and no-one can attend.

Think carefully before deciding upon this route.
