Thank you Jo, unfortunately I was expecting an answer like yours.
In actual fact it was Poole Social Services who requested his information to be returned, and mail etc. and informed the Police. Since then my Father, died at the age of 96. As an executor I was bully by the resigned POA who held all the info, etc, together with her father, my eldest brother. I received a lot of bullying , threats, but then again that is another matter. I am concerned that I felt pressurised to sign probate even though I was not allowed to see the details.
Thank you for your sound advice, sorry to moan!!
