About us

Knapman Family Guarantee

The Knapman Family Guarantee is our commitment to you that our professional fees will remain fixed for a period of 12 months from our meeting.

Whilst we cannot control every cost associated with your chosen funeral (such as the disbursements paid for cremation fees for example), we will do everything in our power to ensure that you have peace of mind in an increasingly expensive world.

Knapman Family Flower Library

Our growing flower library is the perfect resource for those who wish to show their affection and respect for a loved one but who may find some of the costs prohibitive or the thought of a more sustainable solution more appealing. For more information, or to discuss a donation,  please get in touch.

A funeral plan is an easy way to arrange the funeral you want in advance. A plan allows you to specify your wishes and pay for the funeral director’s services included in your plan. As our 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.  

At Knapman Family Funeral Directors, we work in partnership with Golden Charter to provide you with a safe and reliable way to plan ahead. As one of the UK’s largest funeral plan providers*, Golden Charter has helped 900,000 people make funeral provisions** so we’re completely confident in offering their plans to you. 

Everyone has different needs when it comes to funeral planning, so we make sure the plans we offer are as flexible as possible. When you get in touch, we’ll be happy to discuss your funeral requirements and tailor a plan to suit you. Rest assured a plan from Golden Charter is available to all UK residents who are over 18, regardless of age or state of health. 

Would you like to know more information about how a Golden Charter funeral plan could work for you? We can provide you with all of the information you need to make an informed decision for you and your family, so get in touch today!
