Golden Charter Funeral Plans
James Cooney Funeral Directors can now offer you "Golden Charter Funeral Plans".
If you have ever had to arrange a funeral after someone you know has died, you'll appreciate how traumatic and difficult it can be.
A "Golden Charter Funeral Plan" is funeral planning before the need arises.
This service relieves your family of unnecessary worry and financial strain. They do not have to make difficult decisions at an emotional time without guidance from you as to your desires or wishes.
By adopting this plan which is open to all ages, and of which there are no doctors or medical reports required, there is financial benefit as the price you pay now, covers the cost of your funeral no matter how far into the future that time is.
