Mothers wishes were included in a written will
Mothers will states that "monies held in her UK bank accounts are to be given to my grandchildren".
Mother had this joint account with the TSB and some National saving bonds.
The account had £13,027.37 accummulated before the passboook went missing, my sister had put monies into the account after March 2007. Mother closed her Halifax account in 1993 and opened this account.
When my sister closed the account the sum of £12,126.18 was transferred to a account that she opened and this account was then used as her sons rent account, e.g. she could not close the account as such without mother or death certificate. The bank inform me that the other account was closed in January of this year.
