I used the Marie Curie free-Will writing service. The process was one of the easiest things I’ve ever done in my life. All the problems were taken away from me. It was handled with sincerity and compassion by the solicitor who was doing it with me. It was so quick and easy – it took half an hour in the solicitor’s office.

About free Will-writing schemes

Marie Curie has agreed a set fee with participating solicitors to write a simple single or mirror Will, or update an existing simple Will. 

Who can use the scheme?

The scheme is open to individuals and couples aged 55 and above. For couples, only one person needs to be aged 55 or over. Any complex work undertaken by the solicitor may incur additional charges which will be invoiced directly to you. 

What doesn't the scheme include?

  • complex tax advice
  • the creation of discretionary trusts
  • lasting powers of attorney
  • any other complex issues over and above a basic simple Will 

If I use the scheme, do I have to leave a gift to Marie Curie?

You are under no obligation to leave a gift in your Will to Marie Curie. You’ll find more detailed terms and conditions in the information pack. 

Your solicitor must provide Marie Curie with your name, address, date of birth and whether or not you have included a gift in your Will to Marie Curie. 

Do Marie Curie write the Will?

Your solicitor will write your Will, not Marie Curie. We comply with the Solicitor’s Introduction and Referral Code published by the Law Society and any solicitor to whom we may refer you is an independent professional from whom you will receive impartial and confidential advice.
