My mother passed away recently. My parents have separate wills identical. However one of the banks has asked us details of the person who write the will. The will was written nearly 40 years ago. The solicitors form has long gone. What do we do

tell them that?
Explain the situation, and let the bank decide.
I would ask them why they want to know, unless there is anything contentious or contradictory in the Will I cannot see any reason for the question. If it was drawn up by soicitors they would probably have witnessed her signature and their official stamp should be on the Will.
You seem to have asked a lot of questions about this Will, earlier saying everything goes to your father so there should not be any problem.
As long as the named Executor is dealing with the Estate and has obtained Probate (if required) it should all be straightforward.

I don’t understand why anyone would ask this – I wrote my own Will, but there is nothing on the A4 sheet of paper to say ‘who wrote it’, only my signature and the signatures, names and addresses of the two witnesses.

By the way, one of those two witnesses has since died, and with the other being at least 10 years older than me, they are likely to die before me. But this should not cause any issue with my wishes being carried out as set out in my Will.
Where there's a will there's a way, ZaM
I don't think this is the same q though zacs. It's about the same general thing (the mums will) but is specific to the writing of it This time.
