No - this is just number of witnesses.
I assume just you for your case?
If you have any witnesses you put them here.
Can I clarify anything?
I will be a witness for the claimant. The claimant is elderly and it has been me who has been communicating with the defendant and also I have held a pre-action meeting with the defendant.
So under witness name obviously me.but under 'witness to which facts' what should I write? I/the claimant has not included the supporting facts with N181 and so cannot make reference to the facts the I will be a witness to.
Then you need to put the claimant and you
That is all you need to put
Can I clarify anything for you?
Actually thinking about it I don't think I am a witness at all. I have on behalf of the claimant created and undertaken all the communication with the defendant, which has all been focused on and failing to get the defendant to be transparent in his dealings. Apart from the fact that I was witness to a meeting where the defendant chose to discuss certain matters but chose to 'hide' details associated with this claim.
Just read your response will insert the claimant and me, but there is another column titled 'witness to which facts' do I just leave this blank?
Just put 'all facts'
Does that help?
So just to clarify.
There will be some facts that the claimant is witness to, most of them in fact and a few facts that I will be witness to. Will the Judge be OK with me saying "All facts"?
Yes that is fine

Final thing. My wife as POA, she has been party to everything ... Should I include her as a witness?
No you do not need to. That does not change who is giving evidence etc
