The will states first that the Executor of the will is the Husband. The next paragraph clearly appoints both children as Executors IF the husband has predeceased her, which he has.

Both children are living, and prepared to be Executors of the will.

What additional wording in the Probate Affadavit, and additional documentation (perhaps a copy of the Husband's death certificate?), is required to show that the replacement Executors are correctly applying jointly for probate.

Can we just say "We are the executors named in the will since the first-named executor predeceased the testatrix, and we are over 18 years of age..." etc.
