In British law, when someone dies having left a will, probate is required to release the deceased's property. This is Abraham Rose's will:



This is the last Will and Testament of me Abraham Rose of 10 Cobourg Street in the City of Leeds Butcher. Whereby after payment of all my just debts funeral and testamentary expenses I give devise and bequeath All my real and personal estate whatsoever and wheresoever of whatever nature kind or tenure soever unto and to the use of my dear wife Fanny Rose absolutely. I hereby appoint my dear wife sole Executrix of this my Will. I revoke all former Wills at any time heretofore made by me and declare this to be my last Will. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand this 12th day of October 1903.

Signed by the said Abraham Rose the testator in the presence of us present who in his presence and at his request and in the presence of each other have hereunto subscribed our names as witnesses.
