Where should I keep my will?
Not in your sock drawer! Not in the sideboard! Or with the cutlery! A Will is one of the most important documents you will ever sign. Therefore, it is important that;
- Your executors know where it is kept.
- It is safe from Theft, Fire and Flood
- Easily accessible when required.
Obviously here at the National Federation of Funeral Directors we take the passing of a loved one very seriously. So we understand that taking worries away from those left behind is vital. That’s why we have a safe Will Storage Service.
Our secure location is open to all. We have also contracted Advance Guarding to add that extra bit of reassurance to our clients
You pay £27.00 per year by direct debit for a single will/trust and £35.00 for a Double/Mirror. We will also provide you with full instructions for your executors of location and access to your documents.
Have you registered your Will?
We can now register your Will with Certainty the National Will Register!
Why should I register my Will?
In a survey commissioned by Certainty the National Will Register, two thirds of children would not know where to locate their parents’ Wills. The passage of time, house moves, and new relationships are all contributing factors to this statistic.
Writing a Will and regularly reviewing it is one of the most important things you can do for your loved ones. Therefore, ensuring that your family can find it when you have passed on is essential. If a Will cannot be found after your death then your assets will be distributed in accordance with the intestacy rules, not necessarily in the way you would have wished.
We hold your Will safely, but we record its location with The National Will Register so that beneficiaries can always locate it when the time comes.
