Once Probate has been granted a Will is a public document and anyone can download a copy of it from this government site (as long as they are willing to pay the £10 fee). A Will isn't a private or confidential document after Probate. You don't have to have any connection with the deceased to get a copy of the Will, plain old nosey-parker is fine.

As executor after you have Probate you are required to give information to anyone who is an actual or potential beneficiary, or if ordered to do so by a court. But not to anyone else. If family members who are not beneficiaries want to know what's in the Will you are entitled to tell them to go to the online site and pay for their own copy. Although personally I'd find it less hassle to just give them a copy.

 

The total value of the Estate is stated in the Probate document so again anyone can see it if they download the Will. But the Executor is only required to give details about how the value of the Estate was calculated and how it was paid out - ie the Estate accounts - to beneficiaries.
