Thanks for that link Mckha489,  I could not find it and thought membership of a database was necessary.

Does anyone know when the probate calender is due to be updated to include deaths of 1985 ?

Lipscombe (Longwick Berkshire 1825- 1960)
Marsh (Co Durham+Berks  Bucks post 1935, Wokingham 1990)
Reynolds (Buckinghamshire)
Green Berkshire)
Brown (? Co Durham)
Wilson ( ? Buckinghamshire)

Have you not heard of the Find a Will website?

https://probatesearch.service.gov.uk/#wills

Years covered are 1858 to present day.  Not everyone will appear as some people did not make a will or for whatever reason do not appear on the list.

thanks Girl Guide.
In answer to your question, I thought that I had seen something about finding probate in the past but that a sub was necessary.

You should always try looking at the years following the death - she is on there I will leave you to look.

The probate calendar on the government website goes to the present day, it is regularly updated

Are you checking under the right years as per attached
