Free Will Service


Your use of our Free Will Service is governed by the following Terms and Conditions. 

You must be aged 55 or over to use the service and we stress that you are not obliged to leave a legacy to charity. Your solicitor’s costs are subject to a maximum limit agreed between Cancer Research UK and your solicitor: you may therefore be liable to pay any costs which exceed this agreed limit, and so you should clarify this with your solicitor on your first appointment.

It is a condition of the Free Will Service that, for your solicitor’s costs to be covered, you must complete, sign and date the Free Will Service form and give it to your solicitor. You must also sign their invoice for their work upon completion of your Will. Your solicitor must then send us the Free Will Service form and their invoice. Please note that your solicitor alone, not Cancer Research UK, has control of and is responsible for preparing your Will and you will be primarily liable to pay your solicitor’s costs until these conditions have been met. 

We comply with the Solicitors’ Code of Conduct 2011 published by the Law Society, and any solicitor which we might promote is an independent professional from whom you will receive impartial and confidential advice. Promotion of any solicitor’s firm by Cancer Research UK does not imply recommendation by Cancer Research UK. 

If you would like to use our Free Will Service with a solicitor’s firm which is not promoted by Cancer Research UK, please ask them to call us on 020 3469 8797 so that we can contact them and provide them with information. If you would prefer to use the Free Will Service online, rather than with a solicitor face to face, please check the terms and conditions on our website, at
