Who will be writing my will?

This online Will service is provided throughout by Co-op Legal Services. We act entirely on your behalf and any advice we give is completely independent and impartial.

Do I have to leave the RNLI a gift to use the service?

The RNLI hope that when you use their service, you will consider leaving a gift in your will to them. Most people who use this service choose to leave a gift to the RNLI, to help fund their work saving lives at sea.

Is any will free?

Standard single and mirror wills are free using the RNLI free will service. However your circumstances might mean you need a different type of will which could incur a cost. We'll discuss this with you. You do not have to pay anything until you’ve spoken to us.

So easy to input the details via the internet. Telephone appointment on time. Everything was clearly explained and we weren't rushed. S. K., Knebworth
