Does an executor need to see ID for beneficiaries?

As the executor of an estate I am about to pay out the legacies – all the children and grandchildren of my uncle who dies.

Someone has said that I need to get ID documentation for them all  – even though they are my cousins and I have known them forever.

Is that correct?
