Thank you for your question

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
When did you lose your mother?
Do you know if the Will was lodged with a Solicitor?
I am sorry - I was trying to ask questions in order as it was not clear from your opening query what exactly had happened - other of course than that you had recently lost your mother.
You have said that you left your sister to get on with matters - so it was first necessary to work out if we were talking about a loss some months ago - or, as in fact , only a few weeks ago.
That being the case it is clearly too early for Probate to have been applied for - so the next step is to trace the Will and check if you are indeed still named as an executor - which is most likely - and then arrange a meeting with your sister to discuss how the practical matters will be dealt with.
I hope that this is what you are now doing via solicitors
