I was reading someone else's account of a will I had and realised there was more to be got from the will than who he left things to and what he had to leave. There is also who he owed money to and who owed money to him. It made me realise that I will have to go and reread what I have.

Its so easy to miss something the first time round. My advice is always copy everything, don't just paraphrase it, and always take a quiet moment to reread it.

Absolutely true, where any form of legal paperwork is involved, make sure you understand the contents even if it means reading it more than twice.
My wife worked as a book-keeper in solicitors and her experience there taught me that.
