The Law Society which is the governing body for solicitors in the UK is well aware that solicitor's files can hold documents and information of value to clients. When a solicitor ceases trading, for whatever reason, he must either pass the files to another solicitor or the Law society will appoint another firm to take over the files. To answer your question the deeds may have been returned to the Land Registry by Kelhams before they ceased trading but you can check with the Law Society who is now dealing with their files if this was not done and they will be able to tell you who now has them . The Law Society will come up on your search engine.
I hope this helps. If there are any further points please reply.
