    My mother's probate was granted in 2 months earlier this year.
    Out of curiosity I ordered her will and probate for £1.50 and received them pretty quick.( My mother had a copy of her will when she made it.)
    Strange to think that if somebody wanted details that they could have a copy so soon after her death but we aren't allowed to see a census unless it is 100 years old.

    I think they’ve lost the plot - tagged on to one of my wills (due date 12th August) was someone else’s will. So if anyone wants the will of Cicilia Levine of Wembley.......o_O

    Well! :) Ordered some wills on 8th October. Two of them showed due date of 10th October. These two have arrived today. I must admit they are both very recent and probably already digitised but even so it was a bit of a shock to get them so quickly.

    Well, I'm still waiting for one, ordered on the 28th July :sceptical: The others have arrived in dribs and drabs over the past couple of weeks.

    I was probably a little over-optimistic when I started receiving my notifications... there is still one outstanding from that order period - and the later ones are still in the queue somewhere.

    Of those delivered yesterday, I had ordered one previously and forgotten (at full price) but my OH's 2nd g-grandfather's one in particular was a goodie. Pages thick as he named all sorts of people as beneficiaries. This was the chap who made his fortune, believe it or not, in night soil. :)
