1. Each of the nieces and nephews count as next of kin. So the first of the nieces and nephews who extracts a Grant of Probate will be the person who will be the administrator of the estate and the person who will fulfill the same role as an executor if there had been a will. So as far as who gets to administer the estate, it is a race to the Probate office if more than one of the nieces and nephews wishes to act as administrator of the estate! as each has an equal right to act as administrator.
