"for the survivors of my children <<insert names>> attaining the age of.."

If the money is left to the children, is this the wording?? To a non legal person like me it seems to be left to their children.

Thank you

not sure - but I know that when my Granddad made a proper will after my Gran died they did wording that included any subsequent grandchildren as well as the ones that were around when he made it.

yeah it's the children. Its jsut to ensure the gift doesn't fail if any of the children die before the testator.

What Chops said.

It means "those of my children who outlive me", not "the people who survive (i.e. follow on from) my children", IYSWIM.

thanks very much - it's my own will, was just checking because it looks so odd.
