Hi

Thanks for your patience.


Whoever is the executor in he Will shall be responsible for the administration of the estate, which includes deciding who should see the Will or be informed of it’s contents. Usually they would decide that the beneficiaries should see the Will.

If a grant of probate in the estate has been obtained a copy of his Will will be attached to it. You can search the probate calender to see if one has yet been obtained and they pay a fee to receive a copy of it. Follow the instructions on the following site:-

If no grant has been obtained you should make a "standing search" of the calender, which will notify you and send you a copy of the grant if one is take out within 6 months of the date of the search:-
