    If you ever get the chance watch a series by Charlie Brooker called 'Black Mirror'.

    It theorises that one day some companies will be set up to allow people to talk to their dead relatives/friends online dependent on how they acted when they were alive. - Creepy Shit. But interesting nonetheless.

    Yeah, My Father died in March and he was in his 70's. He only had a small online footprint but even dealing with the few online accounts he did have, was a pain in the arse.

    I have 100's of online accounts and it will be a nightmare, so it is definitely something to think about.

    Does anybody know if I can bequeath my BHW account?

    I am interested in knowing that as well. With that, what if someone wanted to terminate his / her account here while he/she is alive? I did not get any answer in the Terms. It's not that I want to, but I am just curious :p

    Some of those accounts have value.
    Some may or may not hold a large amount of funds.
    I would like my beneficiaries to get access to them, without too much hassle.

    Leave an instructions manual for them with all the details. Problem solved. ;)

    I did not realize the older demographic (ages 65-74) in the UK are so active (70%) online. Looks like I may have a new niche! Thanks W130SN!

    That demographic is really growing online and they have more money to spend than the under 25's

    Plus, they have not been "hit" as hard (in an online marketing sense) as the younger demo.
