The Facts

Here are just a few good reasons why you should write your Will.

Without a Will:

Over 70% of the population have not got a valid Will

Longest Will - Mrs Frederica Cook - 95,940 words, bound in four volumes

Shortest English Will - ‘All for Mother’ in which his mother was his wife, not his mother. It was contested and later admitted for probate in 1906.

Oldest Will – found on Wall of Tomb of Kings – dated back to 2600 BC!

Finally, estate planning isn’t just about your Will, what about powers of attorney, funeral arrangements, probate and administration, tax advice, protection of your home, making provision (or not making provision) for children and dependants, pension and death in service benefits, and many other issues surrounding your life.
