The problem with life is we’re all going to die. Until we work out how we’re going to live forever. Talking about death is hard, and planning for it is even harder.

So, what do you want to happen when you die? We know planning for death isn’t easy, but if you don’t do it, who will?

We created Deathwishes as a way to help you express what you want to happen when you die.

How to make a deathwish

Deathwishes are your chance to define what you want to happen when you die. It’s all about the what, the who and the how.


What do you want to happen? When nothing matters, what matters? Get the mortgage paid off, clear your debts. Making a deathwish can help you to work out the answer to ‘how much life insurance do I need’


Who’s it for? Maybe it’s for a member of your family, a pet, a charity, a group of friends, your community or maybe an English rock band formed in the 1960s.


How can you make it happen? If for example, you wanted to pay off the mortgage - and you don’t have the cash stashed away somewhere, then you’ll probably need a payout to cover this. Here’s where we can help.

Sharing a deathwish

We’re trying to change attitudes to death. As a nation we’re predictably uncomfortable when it comes to talking about, and planning for death.

Why is sharing important? When it comes to death, it’s usually the things that aren’t shared that cause all the problems. Even the really simple stuff, cremation or burial? What do you want to happen with your ashes? What do you want to wear in your coffin? All very reasonable questions, but have you ever considered them before?

So when you’ve created that Deathwish, don’t forget to share it. Otherwise no-one will know that you wanted the grim reaper to carry out your cardboard eco-coffin and a cash payout to go to your daughter to help buy her first house.

My name is Greens and this is my deathwish.

We asked Rugby world cup winner Will Greenwood what his deathwishes are. All we know is that we want to be at his funeral for the eton mess.

Sharing is caring. When we start sharing deathwishes is when we start changing attitudes.

When nothing matters, what matters? Have a cup of tea and think about it. Then, if you want, Make a Deathwish.
