Ok, this will still not form part of his estate. This will essentially be you gifting money to your cousins. You Uncle's will is valid and a grant of probate can be extract, however the estate has nothing in it so the bequest to your cousins from your Uncle fail as their is nothing there to meet them
If you give money to your cousins you do so off your own bat and it is a gift from you
It will have nothing whatsoever to do with your Uncle's estate
