Can I retire?  

An Executor can renounce his appointment immediately, but once he has begun to deal with the deceasedís estate he cannot retire until the estate has been fully dealt with, unless someone with an interest in the estate obtains an order of the Court to discharge him.

If you have been appointed as an Executor, you will need to consider carefully whether you wish to act before you take any steps.
