Hi
IF the plot has passed to your brother then yes I am afraid that it will pass to his widow.
However unless he was left the plot in his father's Will then the Plot does not belong to him and you or one of your siblings are entitled to apply for the deeds to be transferred to you
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
