Hi Choccy,

Thanks for your swift reply. Does it by any chance include any detail of next of kin and personal property value please, as advertised on the ancestry website?

Emmanuel Bartram's

Thnak you for the interest you have shown,

This site gives instructions about how and where to apply for a copy of a will or order of probate proven between 1858 and the present.
