    What reason would there be for a person who was born, married lived & died in England [Essex] to have a Will marked 'Reseal'? He died Forest Hospital Buckhurst Hill, Essex. May have at some time been in Ireland I don't know .
    He is mentioned for probate in England & His Wife & Brother are named.
    Death Date: 24 Jan 1961
    Death Place: Essex, England
    Probate Date: 14 Mar 1961
    Probate Registry: London, England
    So why Ireland, is that perhaps where the will was lodged?
    Dates with both are the same, effects vastly different.
    " Re-sealed Belfast 28 April."

    This was a 3rd cousin once removed, & today I 'met' the G'Dtr of one his cousins [Canada] so don't really wan to name names.

    Any help so appreciated.

    I am not sure of the complete answer but I think that resealing of the will would be because he could have had assets in Ireland.

    The will would need to be sealed and then re-probated (or something similar) in Ireland in order for those assets to be released.

    I think.... o_O

    Thank you Jan, I wondered at something of the sort as the amounts were so different.
