Dear Mick

I am afraid not as those who will inherit from the intestacy of your uncle's wife are determined by their proximity to her not your uncle.

The 2 siblings will be entitled to share what is now her estate.

If there are any further points please reply I will be happy to respond.

I appreciate this is not the answer you desired but please accept my answer on the system so I get credit for my time.

Best wishes

Michael
