3 years in the planning and launched at the end of 2020, Life Ledger is a free easy-to-use service helping families deal with death notifications.
Founded by long-time friends Ruth Blakemore and Tremayne Carew Pole, after Ruth’s painful first-hand experience of trying to close her mother’s accounts, their initial focus was government and driving change from the top.
When this delivered no results, they decided to create their own solution and Life Ledger was born.
In 2019 Ruth stepped into an advisory role and Nicky Hector, who had watched her mum struggle with the results of her grandmother’s death, stepped out of Ocado to help lead Life Ledger from idea to reality.
Two years later Life Ledger was launched.
