Still twiddling our thumbs. Can't hurry these things.
I now have a photo of the person involved (when she was about 3 and in fancy dress) that my cousin found in the album of a great aunt. She is looking to see what other gems are in it.

Update: Still heard nothing.
In the meantime, I applied for the lady's death certificate hoping that it might give me a bit more information.
She was living in a care home before passing away in a hospital following a fall. So little to be gleaned there. I have written to the care home so watch this space ......

Another update - I had a reply from the care home, saying there were some photos and a brief history available. So, now am waiting on those.
Also nothing more to report on Finders International.

Still twiddling thumbs with any communication from Finders or any solicitors.
However, a parcel of photos (and possibly other personal items) has just been delivered to one of my brothers, from the care home, and he has just shared a wedding photo of the lady in question with other members of the family. I am really pleased with that.

The continuing saga......
I contacted Finders International re getting a copy of a 'family tree' that they can produce (for a fee) of my grandfather and his siblings, their children and so on but with the names of living relatives deleted.
Their research is continuing because some of the beneficiaries are abroad and are being elusive.
So, still waiting.

Hi

Great to read the saga of your windfall.  A friend has been lucky enough to receive two similar letters in the past decade, re estates of relatives who hadnít married, nor even kept in touch.

Always been interested in shows like Heir Hunters so reckon it must be really exciting to receive news like yours.

Good luck

It is an interesting experience. I haven't seen the Heir Hunters (or other similar) programmes but I imagine that if they condense everything into an hour's (or thereabouts) show, it may give a false impression of the actual time taken to sort everything out.
