Leave a gift in your will

You can help to safeguard the future of the Armed Forces community by leaving a gift in your will.

The difference your gift could make

As the nation’s largest charity helping the Armed Forces community, welfare is at the heart of everything we do. The generous gifts left to us in wills help the Legion to improve the lives of thousands of serving members of the Armed Forces, ex-Service people, their families and dependants. 

The name of every person who leaves a gift in their will to the Legion is recorded in the Book of Remembrance on permanent display in our London headquarters.

Writing your will

Make sure that your wishes are followed and reduce worry for your loved ones at a very stressful time.

Free will writing

The Royal British Legion can help you to write or update a will completely free of charge.
