Why Make a Will?

By making a Will you retain control over the ultimate destination of your estate, rather than leaving it to chance and risking family disagreements and court action by those who feel they have been overlooked.

You can:

  • Appoint the executors, guardians and trustees you believe will take the best care of your family and assets
  • Make gifts to whomever you wish – be they family, friends, or charities
  • In certain circumstances, validly exclude specific individuals from inheriting
  • Control the situations in which beneficiaries will inherit
  • Balance the needs of competing beneficiaries
  • Specify your funeral arrangements
  • Direct the disposal of your body – by cremation, burial or for research or training purposes
  • Indicate your wishes regarding organ and tissue donation

We understand how much peace of mind you will derive from knowing your affairs have been settled in accordance with your wishes, and how important it is to get this right.

Will Writing Client Testimonials

Organ Donation

The law surrounding organ donation has undergone significant change. Organ Donation in 2022 is now ‘opt-out’, meaning that if you have not confirmed whether you want to be an organ donor – either by recording a decision on the NHS Organ Donor Register or by speaking to friends and family – the starting point is that you are assumed to have agreed to donate your organs when you die, unless:

  • You are under 18 in which case your parents or guardians decide;
  • You have ‘opted-out’; or
  • You are in an ‘excluded group’ including;
    • those that lack the mental capacity to understand the new arrangements and take the necessary action;
    • those who have lived in England for less than 12 months before their death;
    • those who are not living here voluntarily.

Your family will always be involved, and so to ensure that your wishes are respected, the NHS recommends that you should tell them what you would like to do and keep them updated if your views change. It helps the NHS ensure that any decision recorded on the Register is your latest known decision. Your family will be able to tell the NHS about any particular requests to ensure that organ donation goes ahead in line with your faith or beliefs; and also provide important information about your medical, travel and social history to check that your organs can safely be given to someone else.

Client Testimonials

“We would like to thank you for your professional help in getting us to a point of having signed Wills after many years of procrastination. Not only that your advice gave us the impetus to arrange a Civil Partnership and we now feel that we have got at least some of our affairs in order in these worrying times.”

KB, September 2020

“Thank you again for helping me sort out all our Wills and the funeral plan for my godmother. I cannot believe how timely that was bearing in mind today’s situation. Only good news from her care home so far, but to know that resources are there to help the staff directly if the worst happens certainly gives me peace of mind.”

SC , May 2020

“I have known Alex Truesdale for over 6 years, during which time she prepared Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney for my sisters and assisted us in the administration of my sister Elizabeth’s estate after her death in 2018.  I testify to her attention to detail, her knowledge and experience in her work and the warmth of her communications whether by letter, by telephone or in person.  She responds to us quickly and we have full confidence in what she does on our behalf and on her advice on various aspects. She has a good network of people when particular advice is needed beyond her field of expertise or training.  She became a friend to us as a family.  I gladly recommend her services to others.”  

KH, July 2020

“Very clear explanation of what the options and implications were for us. It was also good to have someone focused on the end result we had to get to, as it’s very easy on your own to leave to another day.”

EM, September 2018

“Alex arranged an appointment for my husband and I to update our Wills in view of a change in family circumstances.  She was organised, efficient and extremely sensitive to our needs. We discussed advance directives and lasting powers of attorney in-depth – things we had only considered in vague terms previously but realised how intelligent it was to sort them out early.

“I cannot fault Alex’s professionalism and caring attitude, and will be recommending her service to my friends and colleagues.”

SM, September 2019

“After many years putting off writing my Will I finally entrusted Alex Truesdale with the task of compiling it for me and my family. My main wish was to pass my estate on to my son, and have guardianship put in place, should the worst happen before he came of age. Alex guided us through the difficult and emotional process with the utmost professionalism and put us at ease from the outset. She was able to address all of the issues we put to her and brought up many we had not considered regarding our estate.

“As we were about to travel abroad, we were also on a very tight schedule for the wills to be drawn up and signed. Alex went above and beyond to make sure everything was in place for us in the allotted time, even to the point of being personally on hand to instruct ourselves and our witnesses during the signing procedure.

“In using Alex Truesdale Wills, we now feel totally secure if the worst should happen our affairs are in order. We will be continuing to draw on her knowledge as and when our wills need updating in the future and are delighted to recommend her first class service.”

BW, May 2018

“The support Alex gave me and my husband after our Wills and LPAs were finalised was second to none especially as he was diagnosed with a terminal illness a few months later. This ongoing support, advice and bringing in other specialists to assist was outstanding and I felt that we were in very good hands and would continue to be when the inevitable happened.

After my husband died, the comfort of knowing all was in order with the Wills was a great relief and her help in the immediate aftermath was much appreciated. It wasn’t just the professionalism but the genuine concern for my situation and that of the family. Alex then continued to guide me through the process and through some pretty complicated issues relating to the estate administration. She always responded to my copious emails and phone calls with clarity, efficiency and care.

The whole process was dealt with in a timely manner and to a very high standard and I felt that I was being looked after like one of her own family.

I can’t recommend Alex highly enough – a very talented professional dedicated to her work with a heart of gold.”
