    Thanks.

    They don’t need to be removed but need to relinquish their position.
    You will need a solicitor to draw up some document and they need to sign them and you can go on as sole executor.

    Depending on the wording of the will it may not be necessary, but can make your job easier as you don't need to worry about the possibility of somebody second guessing your decisions.
