    Yes, I witnessed many wills when I worked in banking, nearly always covered over. Bank policy was to sign and also use the date stamp.

    We did ours in each other’s presence and the witness to both our signatures was our solicitor who drawn up both mirror wills and the second witness was his p.a.

    Witnesses to a testator's signature must not see the contents of a will. They might be beneficiaries or otherwise connected.

    A beneficiary cannot witness a will in Canada or the US ............... so I checked online.

    They cannot witness a will in England either.

    An Executor can witness a will in England but only if not also a beneficiary

    In the US and Canada a beneficiary who witnesses a will could have his/her inheritance declared void.
