This free UK Government site has three indexes to wills:
• Wills and Probates 1996 onwards. A search returns surname, first name, date of probate, probate number, date of death, document type and registry
• Wills and Probates 1858-1996 (linked to images from the National Probate Calendar). The information given on the Calendars varies over time but includes probate date, full name of deceased, death date and place plus registry where issued. Other information can include the address of the deceased; occupation of the deceased; to whom probate was granted, their address and occupation plus the value of the estate
• Soldiers’ Wills (British Armed Forces 1850-1986). A search returns surname, first name, regimental number and date of death
TIP: Use the Advanced Search as you can search by given name, surname, exact date of death and more. New
