You need to know their years of death and then just use the link above to search for possible probate records.  If you have approximate death years you can use the "next year" facility to search

Thanks Carole.

I have found the son William Henry died 1985 in Bromley, could you please tell me what it means, there isn't anyone or next of kin listed.

Is there any way i can find if he married or had children by this?

If he is the entry with address Quernmore close - you will have to buy a copy of the will for further details

If there is a probate entry it will only give details of whether probate or letters of administration were granted and to whom.  However - that is not always the case.  Many entries do not have those details.

The probate calendar only shows the name/s of executors, not all those mentioned in the will, and more recent entries don't even show executors' names.
 You can use the National Probate Calendar site to order a copy of the will, which will be emailed to you for a 10 fee.  (If the entry shows that it is an administration, rather than a will, this means that the deceased died without making one, so you would only get a copy of the administration document, which won't tell you much).
The will itself may tell you names of spouse and/or children, and can be very useful. However, if for example, a wife is the sole beneficiary, that doesn't have to mean that there are no children.
