Who are Life Ledger?

How we came about

Life Ledger was devised back in 2018 after the death of original founder, Ruth Blakemore’s, mother. Ruth struggled to deal with the admin around her mother’s death and the concept of Life Ledger was formed, a business that could help families simplify the administrative burden they faced after a death. We aim to give grieving families a helping hand when they are at their most exhausted, fragile and vulnerable.

How does the process work?

Our service keeps everything together in one place. Simple, organised and easy all our users need to do is:

  • Register – They create an account and add the deceased details
  • Choose – They choose the companies they wish to inform and add the account details
  • Press Send – Life Ledger only sends the exact information each business requires

Our service keeps everything together in one place. Simple, organised and easy.

Users have an easy to use dashboard where they can track notifications made, accepted, and receive messages from the companies involved.

What is the cost?

The service is FREE for families to use and there is no cost to the funeral director to signpost the service. We make our money by charging the companies we notify, this allows us to keep the service free for families who really need it most.
