Collecting a Will

Before we are able to release the Will to an Executor, we will require authority and identification from all the Executors together with the original Death Certificate. We also require a Death Certificate for any executor who has predeceased.

The Will must be collected from the firm and we will contact you to arrange a suitable date once the Will has been retrieved.

We require two items of identification, one from list A and one from list B before the Will can be released. Originals are required – Internet printouts are not accepted


List A – Photograph ID

  • Current full signed passport
  • Current UK photo card driving licence (full or provisional)
  • Bus Pass


List B – Proof of Address

  • Current council tax bill
  • Bank statement showing current address (not more than 3 months old)
  • Building Society statement showing current address (not more than 3 months old)
  • Credit union passbook showing current address (not more than 3 months old)
  • Current UK photo card driving licence (full or provisional)
  • Utility bill not related to mobile phone (not more than 3 months old)
