    Of 2 brothers and 2 sisters only the youngest son son married in Dec. 1927.

    A brother born 27 Dec. 1896 died en route back from South Africa 17 Dec. 1957. Upon his arrival in the UK on 27 Dec. 1957 his estate was handled by Probate granted to Midland Bank Executor and Trustee Company on 21 Feb. 1958.

    A sister born 3 Jan. 1894 died 23 Mar. 1968 @ hospital in Islington, Greater London. The online Probate calendar on Ancestry covers the years 1858-1966 and 1973- 1995. Where can I find the other years?

    The brother who married was born 12 Jun. 1901 and died 30 Jan 1977 in Dorset, England. The probate Calendar indicates Probate was granted in Winchester 26 Oct. 1977 but does not indicate who the Executor was.

    The last sibling was born 3 Dec. 1898 and died 6 Mar. 1983 in Dorset. She lived with her brother who died in Jan. 1977. The probate Calendar indicates Probate was granted in Winchester 21 Apr. 1983 but does not indicate who the Executor was.

    Over the years I have attempted to obtain details of these possible estates through various sources including the The Law Society to no avail and at considerable financial expense and so I wonder if there are any reasonably priced services available that can assist me.

    Thanks for any help.

    True, but with the more recent administrations where the index doesn't show who the administrators were, your £10 would get you their name and address. (Possibly also the capacity in which they were acting, but I'm not sure about that.)

    The Wills have arrived!! 2 are of great interest to me and at this late stage it looks like certain persons got "shafted". I'll not say more here!

    I don't think it would be appropriate to share on a public forum. People still living have a vested interest in what appears to have happened.

    Just adding something to this family puzzle:
    The parents of these 4 siblings died within months of each other. The mother died [while in residence @ 24 Steeplestone Close, Edmonton] on 2 Jul 1935. Admin. 24 Aug 1936. The father died @ Twyford Lodge, Willesden on 5 May 1936. Admin. 24 Aug. 1936. The Administrator was the youngest sibling and the only one of the 4 to have married.
