I have found my Father's probate/Will and would like to send off for a copy. It was in Lewes, Sussex but I can't find an address to send to. Please can anyone find this for me.

Many thanks

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.

Thanks for the info. Can you tell me how long I may expect to wait for my reply. Have sent form off today.

Thanks you

From my own experience I find that it usually takes about 7 days or so.
