Received e-mail saying my Will was ready, have Downloaded it and now cannot find it !! :-(

Elizabeth, When you downloaded it did you use the "save" option if you did then click on start then because it is a pdf file type " pdf " into the search and all pdf file type documents will be listed, it will not be listed under a name but will only have a file number, example my file number for my download starts FAEJ733

If you never opened it using save you should be able to go to the probate site then log on and click on where it says "My wills" and click on download on the right of that record

I have now saved my download to the "my documents" so that when the 30 days are up I will still have my copy, my order was for 3 of my rellies so hope the other 2 come soooooooooooooon

Just received mine. Left what he had to his mum.

There may not be more than the "I leave all that I have to Mum/Dad" but you get to see the person's handwriting and the current address of the beneficiary plus name and address of the person who is nominated as Executor, My copy also had other info that I didn't no before hand, I knew what regiment and battalion he was in but not which Company turns out he was C Company
