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).
