Free Will Service

Write your Will for free and help fund our life-saving research.

What is the Free Will Service?

Writing or updating your Will can feel like a big decision, which is why we are working with specialist partners to provide a simple and free service. You can have a simple Will or Mirror Wills, written or amended. Once you have used the service, The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity will cover the cost.

About our Free Will Service

Who can use the service?

Our Free Will service is available to adults living permanently in England or Wales looking to write a simple Will.

What kind of Will can you write using this service?

Our Free Will Service covers the cost of writing or amending a simple Will only. Should your wishes be more complex than expected e.g. you have complicated family circumstances or you want to include certain types of trusts in your Will, then you will need to pay the difference between their normal fee for a simple Will and the complex Will fee (the simple Will element is always free). Any additional costs will always be discussed and agreed with you in advance.

Can I write a Will for me and my partner?

Yes, our Free Will Service covers the cost of Mirror Wills. You only need to register for the service once per Mirror Will.

Do I need to leave a gift to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity?

Most people who use our Free Will Service choose to leave a gift to charity; however there is no obligation to do so. Once you have considered your loved ones, we hope you'll be inspired to kindly leave a gift in your Will to us. Your gift can help fund our life-saving research that will make a vital difference to the lives of cancer patients long into the future.

Who writes the Will?

The solicitor firms within The National Free Wills Network and Co-op Legal Services will be responsible for any work they do on your behalf. They are all authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority.

How gifts in Wills help The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity

The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity raises money solely to support The Royal Marsden, a world-leading cancer centre. We believe that all cancer patients deserve the best possible treatment and care. That's why we fund pioneering research to develop life-saving treatments, giving hope to more patients across the UK and around the world.

As more people are diagnosed with cancer and our understanding of the complexity of cancer increases, we need to continue making research breakthroughs to develop new and better treatments.

This is why we need your support more than ever. A gift of any size in your Will can help ensure we can make a vital difference to the lives of cancer patients, long into the future.
