As non EU relatives of a UK citizen you had right to residence in the EU (or UK for that matter) as long as you resided with him. After you father's death, and even if visas were issued before the death, your mother and yourself can avail yourselves of no legal reason to move to the UK. Unless you qualified for British citizenship before he died but, in that case, you would not have needed any visa.To sum it up, and I hate to be the bearer of bad news, the non-EU residents, non-EU citizens, relatives of a deceased EU citizen have no recourse against UK Immigration and Naturalisation's decision to veto their entry in the UK.
