Bit of legal advice on wills needed

Its Only A Game

Well-known member

Just a quickie if there are any legal bods out there.

My Dad (in his late 70's) has just found out that his brother and his wife died a couple of months ago down in Devon.

For some reason none of my dads family were advised, even though his brother was in hospital for 3 weeks before passing away.

We found out yesterday that they have both been cremated and that an inquest has been opened and adjourned. We also got the phone number of the executor of the wills although he has been extremely unhelpful on the phone and didn't seem particularly bothered that we hadn't been informed of the deaths.

Does anyone know if we have any legal right to see a copy of the wills? The executor is a nephew of my aunt who died about 3 weeks before my uncle.

Tried phoning citizens advice but can't get anyone to answer (wonder if they share a line with the club shop)!

Any help would be appreciated either on here or by PM
