About Us

The founders experienced what happens where someone dies without a will.  In all cases there is more hassle, admin and cost for a grieving family. This compounds the suffering of losing a loved one.

A will would have reduced stress and anguish.  Three main issues inhibit people making wills: (a) cost; (b) time and hassle; and (c) denial.

We have provided peace of mind though our online wills to customers and their families for over 10 years.

We work with over 70 charities.  Our free wills campaigns provide wills for supporters and provide data on the habits of those supporters back to the charities.  This gives invaluable insight into charities’ future income streams.
