    I've added insult to injury by ordering another on 15th September. It says estimated date of delivery 30th September.....I still have the 4 outstanding that were due on 26th August.

    I have emailed the editor of a well known family history magazine to see if s/he can arrange an interview with the top brass at gov.uk (Wills) and get some information. They seem quite keen to email and say when our access to Wills is about to expire, although I guess that is automatic.

    I wonder, is this the same gov department that deals with probate? I know that my friend has had a lot of trouble sorting his late mother's affairs over the last few months, something to do with teething problems over a new computer system.

    That's just favouritism, Chimp.

    There was something on Radio 4 today (You and Yours I think) about delays in granting Probate.

    Seems to be a bit random then! Where's the chronological organisation? Silly me....it's a Government Office.

    Just thought I'd pop in to say that the last of the three wills I ordered on 26th July was delivered today. It's interesting! :)
