English and Wales Probate Service website improvement

The Probate Service's Find a Will website at has been improved to fix a problem concerning the inability to locate a will for someone who died in 1995, but did not have probate granted until 1996, which can now be done. The service covers England and Wales, though you will find Scots, Northern Irish and other folk who had estate taken through the system if part of their estate was based in England and Wales, so worth checking it for everyone!
