My Uncle has just died. He left a Will naming an Executor

Customer Question

My Uncle has just died. He left a Will naming an Executor whom the Family do not get along with. My Uncle was unmarried and had no children. He has 4 surviving sisters, one of whom is my Mother who lives in the UK. 2 other sisters live abroad and the 4th has dementia. Is my Mother allowed to arrange my late Uncle's funeral or must we allow the Executor to do so?

Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare and I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Does the Executor wish to organise the funeral?
