About us

For many of us, death is an uncomfortable topic. Talking to our loved ones about their funeral wishes, or communicating our funeral wishes to them, can be especially difficult. The Legacy of Lives tool aims to change this.

Supporting your loved ones and creating a lasting legacy

Without knowing a loved one's end-of-life wishes, planning a funeral for a loved one can be hard, and it’s a task made even more complicated by a lack of  information and transparency on funeral costs. The daunting task of organising a funeral is hard. It’s a step into the unknown at a time of shock and grief.

At Legacy of Lives, we want to change this and support you through these difficult times. With our funeral planning tool , people can store their funeral wishes safely in one place - and share them easily with loved ones. Our funeral director price comparison tool means that our users can easily compare funeral packages to suit their budget and create an affordable plan to put these wishes into practice from our trusted local funeral directors. We’re committed to making these tools accessible to everyone - so everything on our site is 100% free. We also donate £30 to our chosen charities on every funeral booked via Legacy of Lives. 

We want to take away the taboo of death

Our mission is three-fold: to open up meaningful discussions about death between loved ones; to make funeral costs and services transparent; and to empower people to celebrate their lives in the way that they choose. 

Rebecca, our founder, dedicates the concept of Legacy of Lives to her Auntie Kathy. After the tragic loss of her Aunt, she witnessed her young family navigate this awful time - and it allowed Rebecca to see first hand the difficulties of dealing with a funeral, finances and family grief. The process of organising a funeral had to be changed, and this is how Legacy of Lives was born. “Kathy lit up so many people’s lives. This tool will help thousands of families through the toughest moments of their lives: celebrating those that have lived, and creating lasting legacies for future generations. For every family that Legacy of Lives helps, my hope is that a part of my auntie’s spirit continues to shine through.”

In loving memory of Kathleen Kenny
