Kitchen Reno

Does anyone know if simply switching off mains electricity at the switchboard allows me to safely remove the wiring from the back of the oven and the hob? I'm uncertain as to whether that is sufficient to isolate the unit.

Is it safe to assume you are from the UK? An electrician will be along soon---Mike----

If after turning off the mains the oven and hob no longer function then it is should be safe to disconnect them.
Do not PM with questions that can be asked in a forum. I will not respond.
