Probate and funeral arrangement

Ensure that your funeral arrangements are dealt with smoothly and prevent costs skyrocketing to help your family at a difficult time.
“Jenny explains things in an easy to understand way and asks questions and probes in areas that you hadn't even considered. Having dealt with solicitors previously, I wouldn't consider using them in this area again. Jenny helped with probate when my dad died, has done powers of attorney for my mum so we both have peace of mind for the future, and has written my Will. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jenny. She has an easy approach and gets the job done as painlessly as possible”
- Hellen, Driffield
"I asked Jenny to prepare a Will for me at very short notice. She explained to me in simple terms what was required and put me at my ease during what is a difficult experience. We discussed my requirements and a draft Will arrived the next day for my approval which I did and the completed document arrived the next day when it was duly signed and witnessed. The whole process was made as easy as possible by Jenny and my resulting peace of mind justified the cost. Highly recommended."
- VAL, BEVERLEY
“I chose Jenny Fothergill to do my Will and also to do a Power of Attorney on my mother who is 83, not that she needs it at the moment. Jenny was recommended to me by another colleague and she came to the house on more than one occasion. She was most helpful and informative and very professional in all her undertakings. I would not hesitate to use Jenny again.”
- PAM, BRIDLINGTON
“Well Dennis, do you know what a power of attorney is?”
“By the powers, I do not”
