You're The Boss...

Have you ever thought about designing a completely unique coffin? Or how about travelling to the funeral in something other than a hearse? Or maybe a natural burial in a beautiful meadow?

Our range of experience and services is extensive. All you need to do is tell us what you’d like, and we will do our best to make it happen. If you are not sure then we’ll do our best to inspire you.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It...

Everything we do is about giving your loved ones a send-off that they deserve, exactly as they would have wanted. But don’t just take our word for it, hear from the families we are proud to have supported:

Thank you for your help in organising the funeral. Your service was excellent especially when it wasn’t clear whether you’d get paid in full. I will be recommending you to family and clients. Thank you again.

Very professional service. Celebrant listened and spoke of John as if he knew him in fact; one of my friends asked if he had in fact known John. If I had to find anything negative to say it would be that I would have liked cards to be placed on the flowers that the family had written messages on. When a family member passed away, we were given cards the day before the funeral which were attached to the flowers.

All I can say is how lovely everyone was; so caring from start to finish. Melissa has been my main contact and she is a credit. She is lovely; everyone has been, David (Funeral Director), who did my husband’s funeral was lovely, caring is what comes to mind when I am writing this out. Everything was perfect for both funerals down to small details on the Order of Service which was amazing. Colin is so nice; he words peoples lives as it should be, happy memories (lovely man).

I cannot recommend your service highly enough. Having just lost my lovely Mum, I couldn’t think straight and on initial contact with your company David (Funeral Director) took all my stress away. Every detail was attended too. From Gill in reception, Melissa on the phone and everyone I mentioned in my thankyou card I cannot thank you all enough. A very friendly, approachable and professional service carried out with compassion. Thank you so much, Mum would have loved her service too.

From the moment I contacted the office with regards to the death of my Dad I was looked after extremely well. The lads who arrived to take my Dad to your facilities were kind and respectful which was very much appreciated at such an awful time. When Kate came to discuss arrangements for funeral, she gave me time to mull over my options, clear explanations and clear pricing for all I wanted. She also gave me the understanding and reassurance that if I changed my mind or wanted anything extra, I was just to call. Visiting my Dad was made easier by Gill who was on reception – the viewing room was tasteful and pleasant. All staff that I encountered were very helpful and respectful.

I would like to thank everyone involved in my Mams’ funeral. Everything went very well, Colin (Celebrant) was fantastic, he made the service. Many people commented on how great his service was. Thanks to the lady at Cramlington office who was there when I went to see my Mam in the chapel of Rest. Also, thanks to the lady who I dealt with on the phone arranging the funeral, it all went smoothly. Thanks again.

The whole process was handled extremely professionally and the service itself couldn’t have been better under such sad circumstances. Many of those present commented that it was the nicest ceremony they had ever attended. I would like to say a special thanks to the Celebrant Colin Reid who handled the ceremony with great dignity, attention to detail and gentle good humour; one of my friends asked whether Colin was a family friend such was the warmth of his words. Please pass on my gratitude. All in all, I was delighted with our choice to ask you to help us to take my Dad on his final journey and I would like to follow him to Seven Penny Meadow with you when the time comes. Best Regards.

My Mam had a strong belief that the funeral services of other family members had attracted significant numbers of freeloading hypocrites so declined to have one of her own. I had no problem with her decision as I feel the same way and will not be having one either. Go As You Please made this service-less cremation process hassle free and respectful.

A very sad day made bearable by the grace, care and compassion shown by your staff. At every point of Joseph’s journey, we were kept informed and up to date with proceedings in a very timely manner. Advice was given gently and compassionately with regards to seeing Joe; due to circumstances, we were unable to view him but family were still allowed to visit and say their private goodbyes which was greatly appreciated. The celebrant Colin was amazing, he really listened to the family and Joes’ essence came through in his words. He did an excellent job. Thank you from myself, my two sons Michael and Lewis and his family and friends for looking after him so well.

Go As You Please could not have been any better, Malissa at Cramlington and Barbara at Consett are very caring and understanding people. They helped me a lot and I can’t thank them enough.

The professionalism of all involved, from the collection of our beloved Mum from her home on the day of her passing, to the delivery of her humanist service, was as a family all Mum wished for (exceptional, compassionate and empathetic). First class service without question!

The team involved in the organisation of this Funeral have been amazing. We rang many times with queries and were never made to feel that we were causing them any problems. All the staff were kind, compassionate and approachable. Heather (Humanist) who led our service was so obliging, she said we could call her at any time. The eulogy she put together for our Uncle was absolutely perfect. It seemed as if she knew him. We only wish the funeral directors in our area (Buckinghamshire) were as good as you all. Can we give special thanks to Heather and Malissa.

I was very happy with service we received from Go As You Please. They listened to what we wanted, made suggestions but, there was no pressure from them. I felt that they were respectful and wanted to “get it right for us”. The Minister was excellent and the eulogy was just right and reflected the person my Mum was. I think she would have liked her send off. The white wicker coffin looked beautiful covered in spring flowers. Thank you for your attention to detail, for listening to us and the service you provided.

We contacted another Funeral Directors when making our decision who to choose and from the first telephone contact onwards the service was exceptional with ‘Go As You Please’. We felt very well looked after and closely accompanied through each step of the process. The way options and details were explained put us very much at ease in selecting exactly what our Mum would have wanted. Although the overall cost was cheaper than if we had chosen one of the more ‘high street’ names, there was absolutely no compromise in quality, service and experience. The actual funeral flew by in an instant and although very emotional, we remember it as being a perfect moment and couldn’t imagine anyway it could have been improved upon. We want to thank the whole team for their great care and service.

My requirements were unusual because of the personality of my sister. Go As You Please provided a beautiful pink coffin with a lovely picture of my sister on the lid and front. As requested, the Bearers dressed up as Alien Lords and there was a lovely procession to the chapel. David (Funeral Director) dressed as an Alien Lord with his top hat and it just made a lovely and unforgettable entry. David’s reading of the eulogy was excellent, not too serious and reflecting on the humour and personality that was my sister. The music I picked was played exactly as requested. Everything went smoothly and all my friends and family commented positively on it. Also, the price was competitive and everything was very professional.

We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone at Go As You Please, Cramlington that contributed to Eddie’s funeral on the 31st March. Everything was carried out in such a kind, caring, thoughtful and professional manner. Special thanks to Kate, David, Malissa and the two gentlemen who attended on the evening. Also many thanks to Colin (Celebrant) who made the service; delivering a very fitting celebration of Eddie’s life! Everyone remarked on how amazing he was and we will all be forever grateful for this. From the first phone call nothing was too much bother or trivial. Many thanks.

I really appreciated the updating phone calls re place of cremation. As Bill spent many days walking in the Morpeth area and had a great love of trees and woodlands it was wonderful to realise just where Bockenfield Crematorium was. I could not have chosen better and would love to think I will end up in the same place. The type of cremation was as we chose, thank you.

Extremely well at putting people at ease at what is the most difficult time in life. Polite, courteous, very understanding, kind and patient. It was uplifting to have such professionals who are extremely good at what they do. I am very grateful for the kindness and sensitivity they showed at this difficult time. I was extremely impressed with the whole experience in everyway and would recommend others to use this outstanding company. I was extremely impressed with David (Humanist/Funeral Director) who put me at ease, he was extremely kind, sensitive, understanding, he did an incredible job on the day. His professionalism was exemplary and something I will not forget. I cannot speak highly enough about the experience with Go As You Please.

The day went really well and everything was perfect for the day. The Lodge (Seven Penny Meadow) was set out beautiful, candles were lit which was lovely. Heather Lambert (Celebrant) was so professional in all she did and her voice was very comforting. She was perfect, a lovely lady. Can’t thank her enough. We used the Lodge after and that was all done lovely by your team, the log fire was lit. All in all I can’t thank Go As You Please/Seven Penny Meadow enough for all you did for me and my family. You are truly really professional and so understanding. Thank you for all you did.

The Humanist, Heather did both my parents’ funerals and she did a great job at the initial meeting at the house; she puts you at ease. She asks you questions that you may have forgot about for the testimonial. You can also have a laugh with her even though it’s a painful time. People were friendly at both the Wallsend and Cramlington Offices, sorry I can’t remember names. Everyone phoned me back when they were supposed to. Overall, very happy with the service. I have relatives who have asked about you and I have given a glowing reference about you.

Highly recommend. Very high standard. Did not feel under any pressure. Helped to guide me to the exact service as requested by Mum. Took away the pressure I was feeling to get the occasion right. We had a private service which was right for us, the service was outstanding – a true reflection of Mum, including Mum’s choice of music. I really cannot praise David and Malissa highly enough. Thank you. After Mum’s ‘service’ it has become quite a talking point with people how lovely it was and starting them to think about their own funerals.

I would highly recommend using “Go As You Please” for all aspects concerning funerals and considering the whole family’s wishes and that of the deceased member themselves. The whole process was made simpler and easier and the staff attending were both sympathetic and professional. Barbara is a wonderfully empathetic person who understands bereavement and was so lovely to me at my most saddest and confused time in my life. I will be informing my family and friends of how considerate this Company is.

On the sudden death of my father on Xmas Day 2022, autopsy required, myself and my brother could not deal with a full-on service. Go As You Please seemed the logical choice for my father’s final journey; a simple one but none the less important. Staff at the Cramlington facility were very empathetic upon visiting my father at rest. The waiting room was beautifully calm and relaxing, saying my last goodbye wasn’t rushed and I could stay as long or short as I wished. Not many companies offer a final meeting for simple funerals but, these do and I thank you all so much.

Thank you all for the sincere kindness, support and helpfulness from the 1st day we met, right until the day of the funeral ceremony and right until we arrived at the wake. When we first met them they didn’t know us at all but made us very welcome explaining what to do, flowers, humanist, cars, talking through every little detail that mattered to us as a grieving family. The day of the funeral talked us through procedures step by step on what was going to happen, with thanks to them it helped us and took a lot of weight off our shoulders. Christine herself would of said a heart warming thank you and a huge thank you from the rest of the family.

But we need not fear as the team at ‘Go As You Please Funerals’ guided us through the process without any problems and they were always happy to answer any questions we had, whether in person or at the end of a phone call. Malissa was great; on one occasion where I got emotionally upset she would not put the phone down until I told her I was ok. The day of the funeral ran smoothly and the people that attended said it was a beautiful service and my Mum would be proud. Thanks to you all and I’ll recommend you in the future.

Malissa, who I spoke to on the phone was kind and caring and talked me through everything. She always kept in touch to let me know how everything was going. The lady in the Consett office was also very helpful (apologies for not remembering her name) In what was a very difficult, scary and emotional time I was made to feel at ease and well looked after by this Company.

I know it was a sad occasion but everyone that attended commented it was perfect and Dave would have agreed. He never liked fuss, so it was perfect, from leaving to go the Crematorium then coming back. Your staff who conducted and humanist Colin were absolutely spot on.
