But 73% of 36-year-olds surveyed by the charity have not yet put pen to paper to bequeath their belongings to loved ones.

Only half of all ages questioned said they had written a will, according to the survey of more than 1,000 people.

Helen Eddleston, head of legacy promotions at Macmillan Cancer Support, said: "We are urging people to take action and write a will to make sure that the belongings and causes close to their heart are remembered as part of their legacy."
