If he was survived by a wife she may have inherited automatically so no probate necessary - if you have his wife's death we may be able to check that depending on the date.

The name is a bit too common to be sure, without knowing year/place of death. There is one to match her yob in Darlington in 1965, but again no probate that I can see.
