Golden Charter

The Royal British Legion is proud to partner with Golden Charter, one of the UK’s largest independent providers of funeral plans in the UK*.

The independent funeral directors who work alongside Golden Charter are proud to support The Royal British Legion. In recognition of the work they do, they will donate £25 for every eligible Golden Charter Funeral Plan taken out before 31st January 2019.

Since September 2016, Golden Charter and its network of independent funeral directors has raised over £195,000 to support our Armed Forces community.  

The independent funeral directors have also supported the Legion by dedicating their own time during Remembrance to decorate Poppy window displays, host fundraising events and volunteer with cross planting at our Fields of Remembrance. 

In 2018 Golden Charter is proud to support the Thank You movement, and will be uniting its network of independent funeral directors to remember the WW1 generation who served, sacrificed and changed our world.

Claire Rowcliffe, Director of Fundraising at The Royal British Legion, said:

“The funeral profession is all about appropriate commemoration of our loved ones who have passed. Through this partnership with Golden Charter we hope to continue to keep alive the memory of the fallen in our Armed Forces community and support the future of the living.”
