Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best
i am afraid that prior to the Grant of Probate the only people entitled to see the Will are the executors.
Once Probate has been granted then the Will becomes a public document and a copy can be obtained using the service here

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
