    No, neither of them contact the Executor. It's not their job, and besides, they don't have a copy of the Will.

    Do you mean Victoria, Australia? The person holding the Will is supposed to file it with the Probate Office in Melbourne. Check with that office. Usually, the solicitor who drafted the Will keeps it in her office. The executor can get it from her. The solicitor, of course, is hoping for the job of executor, or advisor to the executor.

    Oddly enough, I can't find a requirement for anybody who has possession of the Will to announce that he has it, or to file it. Maybe I just didn't look hard enough. Other places have such a requirement.

    NO, the family does that.
