Hi,Thanks for your enquiry.In this instance, the whole Estate would be divided equally between the 2 children.(Only if any of the children die before the person, would the grandchildren receive anything- in this instance the children of the deceased child split equally between them the share their parent would have received had he/she survived the parent)I hope this clarifies the position to you.Kind RegardsAl
