When someone has died and in some cases even before, relatives and friends question as to whether or not there is a will. Very often the will is a marker, something tangible, a point of beginning in the long healing process of living without a loved member of the family or a valued friend.

If you have made a will, it is very important to let family and/or close friends know where the original will is lodged. Very often, the will contains details and information about the deceased's preferred funeral arrangements.

Probate is a court process. Often people do not realise that the process of obtaining a grant of probate is dealt with by the court or judicial system in England and Wales. Very rarely however do the executors actually "attend court" in the layperson's accepted meaning of that phrase.

A grant of probate is a document of title that enables the executors to collect in the assets of the deceased person.  Once the assets are collected in and all taxes paid, the executors can then begin the process of distributing the assets among those entitled.
