Rising funeral costs are a subject frequently in the press these days and as such people are shopping around more and considering alternative options to the standard cremation route that we are all familiar with.

Before purchasing a funeral plan, it’s worth thinking about what a funeral involves and how things could be done differently. Not only to save on costs but to create something more meaningful and relevant. Click here to discuss.

Why Choose A Prepaid Funeral Plan?

Many people these days are purchasing prepaid funeral plans. Here you will find the information you require if you are considering this; and assist you in making the right choices for you.

Guarantees* the cost of your funeral at today's prices

Empowers you to have the funeral you want when the time comes

Saves your loved ones the trauma and expense of organising your funeral for you

*you will be protected against future rises in funeral director costs and all of your funeral director services will be paid for in full, regardless of any interim rise in the cost of funerals.

How It Works

We are pleased to have been confirmed as an Appointed Representative of Independent Funeral Planning Services Ltd (IFPS) to offer a range of flexible funeral plans which can be tailor made to be as simple or elaborate as you desire. Any of the plans detailed in the brochure below can be customised and purchased on a prepaid basis.

Once you have selected and paid for a plan, your money is held securely in an independent trust fund. Here it is invested carefully, to ensure at the time of need the cost of your funeral is guaranteed, regardless of rising industry prices and inflation.

At the time of need, your funds are withdrawn from the trust and Independent Funeral Planning Services Ltd will authorise Go As You Please to carry out your funeral according to the arrangements agreed at time of purchase.

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:

First of all I would like to thank you all at Go As You Please for all you did for us. From contacting you, to the funeral itself we felt you were part of the family and nothing was too much trouble. The kindness and care you gave was outstanding.

Everyone from the staff in Wallsend to the staff in Cramlington were absolutely amazing from start to finish. I felt so supported and wouldn’t have got through this without them. The humanist Susan was amazing too. Thank you so much.

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 arranged my brother’s cremation. I was 100% very happy, the cremation was all organised by Go As You Please, very, very happy. The flowers were stunning, the pictures they sent me of my brothers flowers were totally amazing, they did everything as it was a closed cremation. I would highly recommend Go As You Please Funerals. They are truly wonderful, very helpful and very caring people. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else. Outstanding job by all. Thank you very much.

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.

I would recommend Go As You Please to anyone. I have already purchased mine and my family are going to purchase theirs. Everything was excellent and the service was beautiful. Couldn’t have asked for anything more on this very sad occasion. We bought the prepaid plan in 2014 and everything was done that we asked for.

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.

As a family going through such a shock after the sudden death of my Dad, we were very anxious about what would happen next. Right from the offset were put at ease by David and Malissa. We had a meeting with David who couldn’t have been any better – amazing at the job he does! David spoke with such care and kindness. In what have been such sad, difficult times were co content about our choice to use Go As You Please. The funeral day, flowers, literature and the way David conducted themselves at the funeral made us proud.

All the staff were amazing from start to finish. Malissa and Jean were very helpful and sympathetic, had long talks with Jean, she is a star. The drivers on the day were fantastic. I am pleased you took good care of my beloved daughter who passed unexpectedly on 26/12. We are still in shock and her two boys and brothers. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your kindness and what you done for us. Will always recommend Go As You Please. Thank you again.

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.

After the sudden death of my Mum, my sister and I were unsure what needed to be done. 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.

My partner David died without leaving a will or funeral plan. We had talked about Direct Cremation with Go As You Please Funerals, so I went ahead with his wishes. 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 would thoroughly recommend them. Thank you so much.

David, Malissa and the lovely lady at Cramlington could not have done anymore to look after me, care for my Dad and give my dad the send-off he would have wanted. I cannot thank you enough for everything! I previously used Go As You Please when my Mam passed away in October 2018 and I had no hesitation in picking up the phone and calling when Dad passed away. I knew he would be in safe hands and I would not have to worry about organising the funeral.

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. I and my family could not have asked for better. If there is such a thing as the perfect send off, then you have nailed it. I would just like to thank everyone who was involved and made a sad day one to remember. Thanks once again.
