Do all executors named in the Will have to act in the administration of an estate?

An executor does not have to accept their appointment but once they do they cannot retire without the approval of the court.
An executor can formally renounce their appointment as executor or allow the other executors to act and have power reserved to them. The latter means that if their co-executors, who do accept the role or are unable to complete the administration of the estate they can assume their role as executor at a later date.
