I am looking for relatives of Josie Donnigan, originally from Ireland, but lived in Gloucester area for a good many years.
She was a very dear friend of John Thompson (he was my uncle).

Possible probate record to go with the above death (Registry doesn't necessarily have to relate to where lived)

Sending for a copy of the will might name family

Surname First name Date of probate Probate number Date of death Document type Registry
DONIGAN JOSEPHINE 24 June 2013 4076607 19 April 2013 Grant and will Winchester

You could google for funeral directors in the area who might be able to forward a letter to relatives ?
