Funeral Planning in Cardiff, Barry, and Caerphilly

A funeral plan allows you to plan and pay for your funeral in advance and giving you lasting peace of mind that everything is in-hand.

With a funeral plan from Golden Leaves, you can secure the Funeral Directors fees at today’s prices, in other words, there’s no more to pay for the funeral directors’ fees that are itemised within your funeral plan. Your funeral plan will also include an allowance towards the cost of third-party fees, for example, these might include cremation or burial fees, plus an officiant fee.

Trusted provider of funeral plans

At Ivor Thomas Funerals we work in partnership with Golden Leaves to provide you with a secure way to plan and pay for your funeral in advance. Golden Leaves have been at the forefront of funeral planning since 1984 when funeral plans first became available in the UK, so you can trust that your family will be provided the care and service from industry experts.

Financial security is assured by the Golden Leaves Trust which is managed by an Independent Board of Trustees and regulated to comply with the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Regulated Activities) order 2001.

FAQs & Advice

A burial is when someone is laid to rest within a grave. Cremation is when the person is cremated.
We understand things can change so as long as you let us know ASAP, we will always endeavour to make any changes you request.
Disbursements are essentially third party costs, the most common within a funeral being the burial or cremation fee, minister and doctors fees. Unlike most funeral directors, we include these within our fee to simplify the costs.
