Thank you for your question

My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you.

You can have just one executor - but it is more sensible to appoint at least two - especially if any of the beneficiaries are under 18.

Of there is just one Executor and he or she is unable to act for any reason then there could be some delay in the Estate being dealt with

Please ask if you need further details
