If the estate included land/property then the executors would have had to apply for grant of probate. Hence, you can get a copy of the grant and the will here which will tell you whether anything was left to you.
if the estate was relatively small, comprising bank accounts and cash savings under £20,000, there would have been no requirement to apply for probate in most cases. In that case, it’s impossible to get a copy of the will unless you know who the executors were and whether the executors will let you have a copy. Executors are not under a duty even to let beneficiaries who are named in the will, have sight of it.
