Find a will or ‘grant of representation’ for people who died in or after 1858.

A ‘grant of representation’ gives someone the legal right to deal with a deceased person’s estate. This right is called ‘probate’.

You can order copies of documents online. They cost £10 each - you can pay by debit or credit card.

It can take up to 10 working days for you to receive your documents. Working days do not include weekends or public holidays.

Before you start

Not all grants of representation contain a will. Check the type of grant when you search:

  • ‘Probate’ or ‘Grant and Will’ – a will exists and will be provided
  • ‘Admon with Will’ or ‘Grant and Will’ – a will exists and will be provided
  • ‘Administration (Admon) or Grant’ – a will doesn’t exist and won’t be provided

There’s a different procedure in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
