Wills/inheritance UK/CH

Does anyone have any ideas about what happens in the event of death in Switzerland for a UK national with assets abroad. Does the Swiss system take over everything or is it split? Would one need UK and Swiss wills? Would a UK will (located in the UK) even be valid? Could it be worth deregistering from Switzerland and returning to the UK?

I read something about "compulsory heirs" in Switzerland so you have to, or least had to, leave part of the estate to e.g. parents or spouse.

Any links or info would be appreciated.

Any idea where to source a Vorsorge set or guide to preparing a will?
Does he state take care of disposal if no funeral arrangements are made?

PS I thought about calling the thread "prepare for the end" or "Unluckier than the unluckiest expat in Switzerland".
