Every year in May, Dying Matters host an Awareness Week, which gives us an unparalleled opportunity to place the importance of talking about dying, death and bereavement firmly on the national agenda. In 2019, the week will run from 13th to the 19th of May and the theme is Are We Ready?
Talking about death is often seen as a taboo subject, but the more openly we can learn to discuss death and bereavement, the more we are able to make plans for the end of life.
If you have no living relatives or you are estranged from your family, what are the main things to consider when writing a will? Who can be appointed as executor of your will if there are no family members to appoint? How can we help someone who has no family to plan their future care?
If any of these questions are on your mind or if you need advice when it comes to writing a will and you are estranged from or have no family, please get in touch. Our experienced Wills and Probate solicitors can help you to work through making these decisions.
