You may choose to have one or two Executors, who will be responsible for applying for Grant of Probate on your Estate, thus allowing them to distribute according to your Will.
You should be aware that any beneficiaries who are under 21 at the time of the execution of the will require 2 Executors

Specific Gifts To Beneficiries*
In this section, you may wish to include your siblings, children and perhaps nieces, nephews and close friends.
A specific gift is a particular item or sum of money that you wish to give someone in your Will, for example, a house, car, piece of jewellery, or a designated amount of money.
The gift should be described precisely in your Will, so that the executors can understand your exact intentions. For example, if you are leaving someone a house, you should state the full address and make it clear whether its contents are to be included as part of the gift or distributed to other beneficiaries.
Please Note - If you do not wish to name specific gifts but rather have all your assets distributed to your chosen beneficiaries in your chosen manner (evenly or by percentage), skip this section and go straight to Residuary Beneficiaries.
There may be assets which you may have forgotten to include, chosen not to specify, or acquired after making your Will. In such an instance, a Residuary Clause would be effective in gifting/distributing such assets to named Residuary Beneficiaries evenly or by way of percentage. It would therefore be wise to name a beneficiary to receive an allocated proportion of such residuary assets.
