Sending original Will to HMRC

Hi. I’m sorry if this is a silly question but I’m starting the inheritance tax and probate process for a deceased relative and it’s making my head hurt!
Am I right in thinking that I don’t send the probate application off until HMRC have issued a demand for the tax due?
Also, I note that I need to send the original Will with the IHT forms AND with the probate application.
Can anyone tell me if the Will is returned after it’s sent with the IHT forms?
Sorry, I’ve just spent most of the day researching all of this and I’m very nervous about doing it wrong!
