Key and another v Key and others [2010] EWHC 408 (Ch); [2010] WLR (D) 69

 “Although affective disorder such as depression, including that caused by bereavement, was more likely to affect powers of decision-making than comprehension, the effect of bereavement on a testator’s mind was a factor to be taken into account when deciding whether he had capacity to make a will and was capable of impairing testamentary capacity.”
