I wonder if anyone can advise if all executors need to sign this form?

The guidance notes are not clear and the other executor is not in the UK, so there would be unnecessary delays. Besides, the other executor has been involved in filling out the forms at all.

    The form states "All those who are applying for a grant of representation/confirmation to the deceased’s estate must sign and date this form" so, 'Yes, all executors need to sign the form'.   The overseas executor can always choose to reserve their powers.

    If the 2nd executor is not involved they really should have held their powers in reserve, which can still be done if you have not submitted the probate forms.
