The 10 millionth Will has been registered on the UK’s register of Wills
The National Will Register recently stated that it currently has over 10 million Wills in its database.
According to a 2021 survey conducted by insurance provider Canada Life, around two in every five UK individuals, or 21 million people, have created a Will, implying that The National Will Register claims to have over half of all written Wills recorded in its system.
The National Will Register has managed to grow into the UK’s trademarked Will Registration service, offering a Certainty Will Search to the general public as well as Wills and Probate professionals in its goal of ensuring that no Will is unidentified, untraced, or unutilized when it is needed.
With no previous stand-out central record of Wills written in the UK, finding a Will was left to cold-calling solicitors and Will writers in the main, making for a long, arduous, and distressing situation at an already difficult time. If a Will is not entered in the National Will Register, it is unclear if one was ever drafted.
