We believe in brighter goodbyes

We’re making the processes around death simpler and more affordable, to help you protect the people you love, and say goodbye your way.

Our Mission

Changing the way the world deals with death

From writing your will to planning a funeral, the way we deal with death is formal, complicated and expensive. Instead of feeling supported, people feel lost.

But it doesn’t need to be this way. We started Farewill to change the way the world deals with death: to make the experience warmer, brighter and friendlier.

Bringing positive change to an outdated industry

We launched our will writing service, in 2016, with the aim of making it simpler and more affordable to write your will. We replaced expensive trips to a high street solicitor with innovative online tools and outstanding customer service.

We’ve benchmarked ourselves against the best since then, winning National Will Writing Firm of the Year for four years running at the National Wills and Probate awards.


Cutting out the legal jargon

The more people chose to write their will with us, the more they asked for our help with probate too.

So we launched our award-winning probate service, in 2019. Instead of baffling you with legalese, we’ll listen and give you a personalised, fixed-fee quote. And together with our specialist legal partner, we’ll support you with your grant of probate application and through the estate administration process.


Supporting people to do things their way

Traditional funerals just aren’t the right fit for millions of people in the UK anymore. People want less fuss, more affordable prices, and most importantly, a funeral that truly represents them.

In 2020, we launched our direct cremation service, supporting people to do things their way. Since then we’ve won Best Direct Cremation Provider 2022, and Low Cost Funeral Provider of the Year for two years running.

In 2024, we launched our funeral plan, so that people can pay for a direct cremation in advance and get the same exceptional level of service.
