3 steps to making your Will

List what you own

Think about everything you own (your estate and assets) and who you’d like to be your executor. Our Will planner may be helpful.

Plan who you would like to include

For many people loved ones will come first, but we also hope you’ll consider leaving a gift to a charity like Cancer Research UK. We receive no government funding for our research, so gifts from people like you make everything we do possible. With your help, we will write an end to cancer.

Decide who will write your Will

We would always recommend using a solicitor to write your Will  to ensure all legal formalities are carried out correctly, and your Will is written and witnessed in a valid way.

3 steps to updating your Will

Prepare your information

It’s important to keep your Will up to date. If your circumstances have changed, it may be a good time to review your Will to make sure it still reflects your wishes.
