What people say about us

"Extremely satisfied"


"Not only did Before You Go save me money by comparing the funeral plan I wanted, but the funeral plan I eventually purchased for my mother  saved me £600+ on the funeral director's today prices!  On top of both of those savings I'm expecting to save more by not having to pay the price rises in the meantime. What's not to like?"

"A really friendly and helpful service"


" A really friendly service with lots of great information.  I used their comparison first and then spoke with Andrew, who was very helpful.  He made sure I understood everything.  There was no hard sell and I’m really pleased with the plans I chose for myself and my husband . I would have no hesitation in recommending Before You Go to any of my family and friends wanting to plan their funeral."
