Our History

Smee & Ford is the UK's leading provider of trusted legacy giving information.

We have been working with charities to help them to understand and grow their legacy income for over 125 years.

Our mission is to support charities through legacy insight. We're the only service in the UK that provides charities with timely information on specific legacies left to them, or notification of money left in wills or trusts for unspecified charitable purposes. Our dedicated and highly skilled team of reporters read over 5,000 wills every week to ensure that our clients benefit from the most up-to-date information. 

Smee & Ford also provides bespoke data services to help charities to analyse their legacy incomes and make informed decisions to drive their activities.

Smee & Ford is a part of MiExact Ltd, a Wilmington plc business.
