Just to follow up on something Dorcas said, people who have a heraldic will normally will their name and armory to another person, not to an office. Laurel King of Arms decided that you could will things to a limited number of officers, namely the Kingdom Seneschal and the Kingdom Herald. (I imagine you could will it to the Laurel Sovereign of Arms as well.) Most people do not take advantage of this, but it is possible. 
ps: There was no formal ruling on this, but there was informal rulings permitting it.

The third item I registered below is a Heraldic Will.If I’m not around to decide what to do with my name and armory, Gold Falcon gets to decide.I could register a Blanket Permission to conflict with my device, like I have done with my name, but I don’t care to.If somebody wants to register a device that looks like mine, after I’m dead I don’t imagine I’ll need it, so some future Gold Falcon can grant that permission.  You can will your heraldry to anybody, not just another herald.
