She said: “When we think of legacies in a will we think of cash bequests or the family heirloom.
“But so many of us take pictures on our mobile phone or tablet and store them on our laptop, online or on social networking accounts. Unless you leave clear instructions making sure it will all be available to your loved ones if you die, it may not be accessible and for family that could be very upsetting.
“Our advice is to leave instructions for everything.”
