A Letter of Wishes is written alongside your Will. It helps your executors understand your wishes, but it isn’t legally binding. It can advise on pretty much anything, but here are some of the most common things it’s used for:
This could include where they live, who should raise them, and details about religious upbringing or education.
Take the opportunity to guide your executors and trustees on how you'd like your money to be managed.
Whether you’d like to be buried or cremated, plus details about the funeral service, such as playing a particular piece of music.
For items that you do not mention in your Will, but you feel sentimental about, for example, souvenirs and photographs.
You can write a Letter of Wishes just for you, or choose a package that lets you and your spouse/civil partner write one each.
