Yes by the end of 2015, you will be able to do just this. Yet you will have to contact a notaire to ensure this is done properly and write a will under English law.

I am glad to hear that. I was unsure about the difference between place of birth and country of closest association. Would I have to give proof that I had lived in England during ly adult life?

Expert:  Thegonnec replied 2 years ago.
Yes you would and you would also have to prove than you still have strong ties with England (relatives, economic interests, assets)
