Executor for a British will, resident in Switzerland: Possible?

I have recently been asked if I'd be willing to act as executor to the will of a friend back in England.

While very honoured to be invited to fulfil this role, I am reluctant because:
  • I am not resident in the United Kingdom, and no longer have any property or interests there;
  • I don't have the kind of job that would allow me to take time off at short notice to act as executor.
Has anyone had any experience of dealing with these kind of matters while living in Switzerland? Is it even possible, or does non-residence in the United Kingdom present problems when handling the estate?

Any advice gratefully received.

Thank you.
