What would happen to my children if my wife and I don’t have a Will?

This question is from @Jezasimpson

If your wife survives you then she will be able to look after your children as she would have parental responsibility and the same would apply if she died before you.  If you were both to die then you would be relying on friends, relatives or social services to step in.  In a Will you can say who should be the children’s guardians.
