Thanks for your reply.

You have to search the probate calendar to see if a grant was obtained in the estate? If it was then the will shall be attached to the grant and you can order a copy for a £5 fee because grants of probate are a matter of public record.

Enter "hmcs probate search" and link to the second result available, full details are contained there.
