But what is Golden Leaves´ background and how does it ensure that your funeral plans are protected and prices will not rise?
The company was initially formed by a highly regarded family of funeral directors in Croydon, South London, to satisfy the demand of the community its family had served since 1875.
It has since been shaped to support the growing numbers of independent funeral directors who wanted to offer a funeral plan specific to their own communities and requirements.
Now, Golden Leaves pre-paid funeral plans are offered by a network of funeral directors across the UK, and also Spain, serving the expat community.
Golden Leaves has been at the forefront of the development of funeral planning since its foundation in 1984 and is a founding member of the NAPFP (The National Association for Pre-paid Funeral Plans).
The National Association for Pre-paid Funeral Plans was established in 1993 by funeral plan companies related to the National Association of Funeral Directors. The Association represents the majority of funeral plan companies in the UK, comprising the majority of all plan holders.
The Golden Leaves Trust is overseen independently by a board of trustees and regulated. 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 per cent of the funeral services specified in your plan.
Golden Leaves is the only funeral planning company to provide a repatriation plan, in conjunction with Rowland Brothers International, British expats living abroad and foreign expatriates living in the UK.
