Information about free will services offered by the British Academy to its Fellows and friends.

The British Academy offers two free will-writing services: via the National Free Wills Network and its network of local solicitors, and online via Farewill.

National Free Wills Network

The Academy offers a free, simple will-writing service through the National Free Wills Network. Your name and address are sent to the network via the Academy, and the Network will send details to you of local solicitors in your area participating in the scheme.

For more information contact Jennifer Hawton, Development Manager, on 020 7969 5258 or at


Farewill offers a complete online will-writing service, with all wills checked by experts to ensure their suitability. For a small annual fee you can also make unlimited revisions to your will.
