The planner is here to support you and those you leave behind by letting
your wishes be heard.
We got the call we were dreading; My Aunt Kathy would be going in to a hospice for palliative care. It was the end of her battle with cancer. She was just 58.
We never talked about death, yet she obviously knew and so we were not prepared at all. That's despite the fact, in our hearts, we knew she was going to die. As Kathy's health deteriorated our chance to hear her wishes faded. We had no manual, no plan and didn't know where to look for support.
Then came the funeral; we knew zero about the process, pricing and most importantly, we had no idea what Kathy wanted. We needed to locate personal documents to collect her from the hospital, which were not easy to find, which was heart-breaking. Burial or cremation, photos, music, and readings were discussed and argued between the grieving siblings, it was awful. When I called around for price comparisons for the funeral, I was shocked that the price differed by 30% for the same funeral depending on the company.
I felt compelled to develop a supportive digital solution to help and support others to navigate through this very difficult time. And along with my creative, amazing and equally passionate team, here we are!
The tool is completely free to our users and always will be. I wanted to give the support and guidance to others, which we needed at this time. We work with industry experts in counselling, grief and terminal illness to provide content to guide our users through this difficult time. We will create an eco-system to support our charities and the NHS with much needed resources and raise money for our charitable partners that we hold so dear and owe so much too!
For every family or person that Legacy of Lives helps, my hope is that a part of my Auntie's spirit continues to shine through. Thank you for joining us in this worthwile journey.

My Dad left me a ‘doomsday’ book before he died with an abundance of the most helpful information and wishes. This is a modern-day version with everything in one safe space and a price comparison it’s a godsend for planning ahead and a great support for the family.
This tool helped my family concentrate on grieving and supported us through a very difficult time. I would highly recommend the funeral planner.
I am planning for me and my partner it’s such a simple process, but it makes such a difference to the ones you leave behind.
I really found the planner simple to use, being able to have one place to put my thoughts and memories as and when they have popped up in my head.
I LOVE the legacy vault getting organised feels good and planning financially for my funeral, so my family don’t have to worry.
