Company Website

Hello, we're Farewill and we're out to change the way the world deals with death.
All of us are going to die. It’s a fundamental, tragic, romantic part of what it is to be human - but the industry that sits on top of it isn’t designed to help us make the most of it. We challenge this status quo by building great product experiences that make dealing with death simpler, more personal, fairly-priced & accessible to everyone.
We believe that by equipping people to navigate some of life’s hardest moments, we bring families together, help individuals face up to the fact that they’re going to die, and make life, while it lasts, more meaningful.
About us
We're the UK's biggest (& favourite) will writer, top rated probate provider, and one of the leading funeral companies in the country. Backed by top investors, in the last 24 months we've:
- Averaged a Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 82
- Grown revenue 800%
- Closed our £20m Series B
- Won Consumer Business of the Year, Economic Innovator of the Year, Employer of the Year, and more!
