Can you appoint your own executor in the no cost will or do the solicitors concerned insist on acting?.......(for a not so small fee)

Horse p*ss” indeed.
Very droll, Tonker.

I know plenty of people would be in a pickle if we didn’t have our local hospices.

Unfortunately, they’re only partly funded by the NHS.

As a charity the hospice relies on donations, including gifts in wills, to ensure it can continue providing its vital care to over 1,200 local people every year.
