Our professional service offers the general public, the legal profession and financial institutions, an easy and convenient way of ordering probate records online or by post, covering any probate granted within England or Wales for the years 1858 to 2017.

In all cases, we supply whatever probate record is available. This is typically a copy of the Grant of Probate with attached Will or, if the deceased died intestate, a copy of the Grant of Representation (Letters of Administration). Whether you require a reading copy for general information, a legal copy with an official Court Seal or a Sealed and Certified copy, we are here to help.

PLEASE NOTE: We are an independent company and this website is not affiliated with H.M. Government. Customers wishing to make their own search in person, can do so by visiting an appropriate probate registry. The cost of obtaining a probate record independently and in person from H.M. Government will be less than using our service. For probate registry contact details, please see GOV.UK Court and Tribunal Finder.

Some common reasons for requesting a probate search and probate record are:

  • to identify who are the named beneficiaries and executors
  • resolving a family dispute or issues relating to a will
  • obtaining the probate value of an estate
  • the claiming of inheritance tax relief (nil rate band)
  • historical research
  • any official legal purpose
  • just simple curiosity!

For whatever reason, we offer a fast, professional and 100% confidential service.
