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:

We were impressed from beginning to end. Starting with Malissa, who helped us every step of the way with the transportation of our son Tony, which was so difficult for the family. Malissa dealt with everything so very tenderly and was a great support, with clear instructions all the way. Sam was brilliant, warm and friendly, putting the family at ease. Building on our plans, we loved Sam's ideas - the tags for the coffin were so touching and inclusive. At Seven Penny Meadow, the procession following the coffin with the music was very special. Thanks Sam for the last minute changes. Heather was warm and friendly, put us at ease, we loved her use of words, they were so poetic and described Tony to a 't'. At the graveside her words were comforting and appreciated. We loved that we could use her words in the printed Order of Service. The only improvement point was the volume of Heather's mic, some people, that could not get into the chapel area had difficulty in hearing and of course could not see the short video. Your help and attention to detail made this difficult and sad day very special!

From the moment we called we were well looked after by a very friendly and sympathetic team who made sure everything was taken care of with great care and kindness. When visiting before the funeral, we were met with the same care and friendliness that was given from the start - being given time to pay our respects and goodbyes again in our own time, without any rush. The day of the funeral, everything went as well as we could have wanted and more. Thankyou again for helping us see through such a tough time and taking great care of our loved one who deseved so much.

I initially only chose Go as you Please because I wished my husband to be buried at the beautiful 'Seven Penny Meadow' near Medomsley. However I soon realised that choosing this company is not just choosing a funeral directors - it is choosing a set of real human beings who truly listen, respect and share your vision of how to celebrate your loved one. From the very beginning John, Marc, Melissa and Sam made sure that everything we requested could be put in place - even down to matching us with the most perfect Celebrant - Emma Satchell - who made his Celebration of Life so very special. This is a very special company of dedicated people who put their hearts into what they do, and they do it with the utmost dignity, love, respect and plan things down to the very last beautiful detail. I seriously cannot thank you all enough!

My mam, Linda Gray, had paid for her funeral in advance. She had thought of everything and left several notes to tell us. I want to say the biggest, heartfelt thank you to Melissa as she was totally amazing! From the minute I met her, I knew we were in safe hands, with her bubbly personality and caring nature she made us feel relaxed, stress free and calm (not how you expect to feel when organising two funerals) She is so helpful and nothing was any bother! She even changed the music for me at the very last minute when I had a panic! Although my mam never met Melissa, I felt she would've loved her. What an asset - keep being you Melissa x

During such a heartbreaking time, when you can't even think straighjt, the team at Go As You Please Funerals scooped us up and not only took care of everything, but took care of us aswell. Every interaction was thoughtful, supportive and caring. The undertaker was especially respectful and supportive proving information and guidance. Heartfelt thanks are extended to the whole team. We had over 120 mourners at the funeral, and every single one commented on what a fitting and lovely service it was.

I first used Go As You Please in January 2019 when we lost our son. I chose them because there wasn't a lot of money at the time. In July 2019 I lost my father and chose Go As You Please, because we had excellent service for our son and was so happy. I asked if my mother wanted me to contact you again as we could not fault any of the service we recieved from you. Then very sadly, we lost our mum in March 2024 and I never gave another funeral director a thought. I rang Go As You Please with a fabulous service from the whole team. I would never think twice, I will always use Go As You Please. Thank You.

Having never had to organise a funeral before, I would recommend Go As You Please to my friends, family and others needing to organise a funeral. Everything was explained to us and we were kept in touch with everything that was going on. It gave me great comfort knowing my mam was in safe hands. Thank You.

I have had lots of 'compliments' on how good the funeral was. David was very helpful when he came to the house, making a difficult time a little easier. The celebrant, Colin was extremely thorough finding out about David and his life. The eulogy was exceptional. All of the staff have been so helpful at this difficult time. This was the second funeral I have organised with you and the pre-paid option making things so easy.

My mum had a funeral plan in place, having chosen her own coffin, type of service including choice of music to be played, and all the little details. When she passed away quietly she was taken from the carehome to the Go As You Please chapel of rest, with no fuss or worry for us. My mum had a cousin who was a lay-preacher and as was her wish, he took the service. We asked for a single bunch of lilies on the coffin, and were suitably surprised by the magnificent floral display on the day, lilies as requested, but so much more than just a bunch! The hearse and the family car arrived on time, gleaming in the watery winter sunshine, and we arrived at the crematorium on time. Everything went very smoothly, thanks to the funeral plan, and the care of Go As You Please.

I must say from mam going into your care the communication was first class. Helping and guiding us with the service and music etc. All family and friends were well impressed with the venue and the friendlyness of the staff - can't thank you all enough. Then not forgetting us after the day, calling us to see how we are is a wonderful and thoughtful gesture. So once again I'd like to thank you.

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.

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.

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.

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.
