That's brilliant  :D

These are the details I found for his daughter's death, I assume MS is her title rather than initials.

There is a will listed, so have sent for it. Shame - a relative we didn't know about.  Wonder if they kept in touch with cousin who  witnessed the marriage of her parents?

Yes it is a shame when you discover a relative too late. Let us know if the will gives any useful info :D

Downloaded the will this morning - very quick service!

Unfortunately, none of the named beneficiaries mean anything to me. There are a few small cash legacies, and then personal/family things to three of them.  The remainder of the estate, that is most of it,  is for three charities. The house sold for 325,000 in 2015, so I guess the charities got around 100k each.

So, for the time being, I guess I shall draw a line under that one. It's not as if I knew her, or even if she had left inheritance to anyone that suggests extended family that I didn't know about.

Again, thanks to those who helped me find John.  When I posted the original message, I had no idea that there would be so much to find out!

Regards
