Stress free solutions for later life planning

Patron Wills provide stress-free solutions for later life planning; including professional will writing, Lasting Power of Attorney and Funeral Plans. We want our clients to feel in control over their future wishes and have peace of mind.

Why Patron Wills?

Why hire Patron Wills to write your will or manage your estate? Two reasons actually.

The first – the definition of Patron is “a person who gives financial support or otherwise to a person, cause or organisation”. What better definition of a will or lasting power of attorney could there be?

The word Patron also describes my role in helping my clients perfectly. I’m there to support them, to guide them to explore their wishes and help them protect those things most important to them.

The second – a slightly more personal, yet simple reason. My mum and dad’s names are/were Pat and Ron. My Dad’s passing had a big impact on me and was one of the main drivers behind my passion in supporting and enabling people to put plans in place for ill health/death and to have those uncomfortable discussions with their loved ones. What better way to pay tribute to him and my mum than to name my business after them.


We believe in offering a refreshing, transformative experience for our customers.


We believe in approaching the serious, sensitive topics in life with humanity, a touch of humour and personality.


We believe in showing empathy for our clients as someone they can approach for advice.

My partner and I needed to update our wills. Found Sarah via great reviews on Google. Glad we did. We thought the wills were straightforward, but she gave us other things to consider which we hadn’t thought of.Although a serious topic, Sarah was easy to converse with and made the experience somewhat lighthearted.Would 100% recommend

Sarah made the whole process of making our wills easier then we had thought. From the initial home visit to discuss our requirements, through to the signing of the documents in the comfort of our own home. We thoroughly recommend Sarah to anyone that needs professional, knowledgeable advice.

I needed someone trustworthy to give me some advice on a complex matter so I got in touch with Sarah, who was brilliant. She listened to my situation and then liaised with her professional network to find me the right specialist advice.Sarah’s support and professionalism have been invaluable to me at a very difficult time, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her service to anyone who needs a friendly human to help them navigate the complexities (and extensive administrative tasks!) of death and dying!

Sarah was absolutely fabulous in helping me through the bureaucratic minefield of Lasting Powers of Attorney. Had tried to do myself and got nowhere.Sleeping easier now, knowing there is a plan in place in the event of needing someone to make those critical decisions.

Preparing a Will was always a to-do for tomorrow or next week/month and I had considered DIY or my solicitors.DIY is a minefield for amateurs and solicitors free Will writing is very limited; once the complicated expression of wishes comes into play a Will becomes a significant expense.Having had a serious accident last year I realised that tomorrow or next week/month wasn’t a sensible attitude anymore.Over a long period of time, I had read and been really entertained by Sarah’s LinkedIn posts but also “prodded” by the serious message in her posts.So, I took the plunge, contacted Sarah “the prod” McGuire and Sarah made my whole process informative and easy from start to finish. She listened to every question or request and put forward varied options for me. With her unique humour I am now a to-do done Will holder.I would highly recommend Sarah at Patron Wills for her professionalism and attention to the details.

This is the second time we’ve used Sarah at Patron Wills, each time the service has been excellent and she’s a joy to deal with.Mum wouldnt deal with anyone else as she trusts Sarah to help and guide her through everything she needs. First class service.

I used Patron Wills to draw up my Will. Sarah was friendly and approachable whilst also being knowledgeable and professional. I felt at ease with Sarah talking about my wishes, and the whole process was easier and less icky that I’d feared it could be.I’d wholeheartedly recommend Patron Wills for anyone wanting to get their affairs in order and have that peace of mind

why do I need a will writer?

The drawing up of a will allows people to ensure loved ones are given adequate financial support through their inheritance, but also to protect them, for example by appointing guardians or ensuring a partner has the right to remain in their property after they’ve died, to ensure a business can continue to operate, or a charity close to their heart can benefit after their death.
