Probate Index

David died in 1894. He didn’t leave a will, but letters of administra­tion were issued to deal with his estate. The index is on Ancestry ( ancestry.co.uk/search/ collection­s/1904), and can be searched for free at probatesea­rch. service.gov.uk/#wills. Wills are always worth ordering, but letters of administra­tion do not reveal much more than you get from the index – ie the estate value and beneficiar­ies’ names.
