Access to a family home you are executor of

A question about : Access to a family home you are executor of

My mother passed away on November 10th following a brief battle with cancer. My sister and I were not allowed to care for her as she was living with our eldest sister, neither were we allowed to help out with the funeral arrangements.

Following a few weeks of struggles, we eventually received a copy of the will, which had been kept in our family home which only my eldest sister had access to.

what happens if an executor dies

A question about : what happens if an executor dies

Hi
Just wondered if anyone can tell me what would happen in the following scenario:
Person makes a will and has 3 named executors. One of the executors dies before the will maker does, and the will maker dies without changing the will, can the will still be executed by the remaining 2 executors, or does this cause problems?
Strange I know but there is a reason for asking!!
