Executors who don't want to be...can I instead

I was hoping someone can give me some advice. My Nan died on the 7th April. In the past few years I have looked after her medically, financially and mentally. She made a will about 10 years ago were she made 2 of her children (she has 4) executors of her will but didn't ask the. Both of these named children do not want be executors. The other 2 children are not interested either. Is there anyway as a grandchild that I would be able to do it? It would make it easier as I know what she does and doesn't have. All other parts of the will will be followed to the letter.

Ayes, you can apply for letters of administration in those circumstances.

Where do I get those? Is it a solicitor I need to see?

Yes you will need to see a solicitor specialising in probate
Usually if the executors don't want to do it the beneficiaries of the will are next in line to do it
Make an appointment and take the will and a family tree showing who is in your family and their relationship to your nan. This will help the solicitor. Also good if the named executors go as well
