Executor has written on original Will

The executor thought he was being helpful by writing the mobile numbers of the beneficiaries and the bank account numbers of the deceased accounts in biro on the original will.
Is it advisable or possible to make an application to the Probate Registry to prove a redacted copy of the Will?

Brilliant, you will probably need to apply to prove a Fiat Will. Unfortunately it’ll be a paper application but I’m not sure what form the accompanying documents would now take. It’s been a while since I had to prove a Will in that sort of condition.

Hopefully someone on here has complete that type of application since the changes.
