Probate

The death of a loved one can be an immensely painful experience, often made worse by the stress of organising a funeral, obtaining a Death Certificate and dealing with a Will – or lack of Will – and finances.

It is our job to relieve you of that stress.

Our Team will work with you to provide a service which is tailored to your needs.

We can do everything, from arranging a funeral, obtaining a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration, fully administering the Estate and distributing the assets – to assisting and guiding you through the whole process if you prefer to do the day to day spade work yourself. 

We will be pleased to have an initial talk to you, free of charge or obligation – just contact us.

What will we do for you?

  1. First, we'll listen.
  2. Then we’ll ask questions.
  3. Then we’ll advise.
  4. And then we’ll do what you ask us...
    quickly, simply and at the cost we’ve agreed.

Contact us by phone or email whenever you're ready.

We wish to thank Mr Luke Taylor for his very professional and excellent assistant.
