Is a will valid if it has been signed and dated by the testator, and has two witness signatures, but no witness name, address or occupation?

Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
Yes the Will is valid in those circumstances.
However clearly if there is a challenge as to the circumstances of the attestation (signature) then the fact that the Witnesses cannot be traced may have a negative impact on the chances of the Will being upheld
Please ask if you need further details
