your father's effects and assets and savings etc should have
been distributed under the terms of intestacy which are here.
you will see that if there is no spouse (your parents
were divorced) and your father had not been married, then all his assets go in
equal shares to his children which you will see in the grey boxes, the fourth
one down in the top table.
So your aunt to presumably dealt with your father's
affairs should have distributed things equally between his children.
However this was 24 years ago and you are actually out
of time now to contest anything except if you can allege fraud. However the
police will not be the least bit interested unless you have some concrete proof
where can prove that your aunt spirited money away to your disadvantage. The
police will not carry this investigation out for you after all this time and
you are faced with going to them with the proof that they need.

PS. I use voice type, voice recognition typing because I only
type with two fingers and it would take me ages. Sometimes, a computer does not

sometimes they slip through. I apologise therefore if anything doesn't make
sense. It is me losing it, not you. Just ask if anything is not clear please.
