We could go beyond accountants, and include those that you mention in your response.
My starting point was accountants who offer Probate services. I think it would be beneficial to have such a forum as this service offering for accountants is relatively new and it would be interesting to hear the issues/ obstacles that others are facing with this service offering and how they have resolved these.

I am authorised by the ICAEW to conduct probate activities, and have to say it has been challenging.
The fees generated from this offering are great it is just finding the work can be very difficult.
I plan to preserve for another 12 months at least and see what happens.
Accountants can offer this service more cost effectively than solicitors. The mission is to increase the awareness of your clients and the wider public that we can provide non-contentious probate services at a more affordable rate.
