Un­claimed in­her­i­tance

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

MIL­LIONS of pounds of un­claimed in­her­i­tance is wait­ing to be claimed from the gov­ern­ment - and it could be owed to you.

Records pub­lished by the Trea­sury have re­vealed there are six un­claimed es­tates with links to the area.

When peo­ple die with­out mak­ing a will, they leave be­hind ev­ery­thing they owned, whether that’s money, prop­erty, busi­nesses or cars. This be­comes known as the per­son’s ‘es­tate’ and they can range in value from very lit­tle to po­ten­tially mil­lions. But if no­body comes for­ward to claim it then the money could dis­ap­pear into the gov­ern­ment’s ac­counts.

The un­claimed es­tates for Mac­cles­field are for: Frank Mor­ton (08/08/1930 - 14/02/1988), Gertrude Ethel Cook (20/10/1921 - 08/05/1991), Joan Walker (01/11/1920 - 05/09/2009), Mary El­iz­a­beth Brown (13/01/1902 - 20/12/1995), Alice Les­ley (08/02/1907 - 20/12/1992). There is also one for Alder­ley Edge for Mar­ian Frances Hol­l­i­day (25/12/1941 - 01/11/2014).
