One of the most thoughtful things you can do for your loved ones is to take out a pre-paid funeral plan. With R Johnson Funeral Directors, you’ll get a fully guaranteed plan at today’s prices, relieving your family and friends of any uncertainty about costs and arrangements at an emotionally distressing time.

Get in touch with our funeral directors today, in North Shields, Tyne and Wear, for further information.
More than a million people in the UK have taken out a funeral plan, and more than half of those are with Golden Charter. Our funeral plans put your mind at ease with a unique combination of benefits, including:
Pre-Paid Funerals - Benefits of Pre-Paid Funerals
Fixed Prices with No Hidden Fees – All Costs included in Your Plan Are Covered
Personalised Arrangements to Reflect Your Wishes
Transferable to Anyone in Your Family
Will Option Available
Like everything, the costs of funerals go up over time. However, our plans enable you to protect yourself and your loved ones from rising costs by taking out a guaranteed funeral plan, with nothing more to pay. You also have the option to add a will to your plan to ensure your wishes are followed.
Plans also include an allowance to cover any thirdparty costs that are not within the funeral director’s control. These costs are for essential services that might cost more, like the cost of burial or cremation or the officiant’s fees, if applicable.
Including a contribution to these in your plan prevents the likelihood of your family or estate having to pay extra fees at the time of your funeral. Please note that if these costs exceed the available allowance, an additional charge may be incurred.
