Hi Lorraine got married on the 1st Nov will wrote on 23.11.2010 and witnessed by Dc Jane Rees on the same dated.
the words Executor do not appear however the following sentence states " I wish the following persons to be consulted in the event of uncertainty about my wishes" Lorraine then stated her sister Barbara and her close friend Amber,NONE of whom have been approached re the will. Harvey Goodchild

I think there is some confusion as a "living will" deals only with what happens in the event of the need for Resuscitation or end of life care - it has nothing to do with the financial issues.Any actual Will would have been revoked on the marriage and accordingly unless your daughter made a new Will (of the type dealing with financial issues) then she died intestate and the first £250,000 of her assets go to her husbandPlease ask if you need further detailsClare
