Lawyers champion on-line wills register

Sep 03, 2009

Tollers is promoting the register in this area, which aims to help speed up the legal process after a death in the family.

New research reveals two thirds of people surveyed do not know the location of their parents will. 


Solicitor Martin Hill at Tollers said: “It can cause pain for the whole family. If a will is never found it can also significantly affect the level of inheritance.”

Mr Hill (pictured) added: “The sooner a will can be found and dealt with properly, the sooner the family can start to deal with their loss.  This is why we are promoting in Milton Keynes. Its a very simple but powerful way to remove the pain caused by missing wills.

Anyone who has a will written can ensure it is registered on the database at In the event of their death, an authorised solicitor can access the will even if they have changed address.
