Customer Question

My aunt and uncle died recently and although we're sure they left wills we don't know who the solicitor is and the executor has now also died.
How do we find copies of the wills?
Thank you

How did you know who the Executor was?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's a long uncle and his wife both lived on a farm near Macclesfield, the owner of the farm and his wife both died in a train crash in the 60's leaving their two sons John and Denis Clowes. In their will he gave my uncle and his wife the gift of living free of all costs in a cottage on the farm if they helped raise John and Denis.
Fast forward to 2 years ago and my aunt died and not long after my uncle was moved into a nursing home, he sadly died about 2 years later.
It has always been assumed that John Clowes was the executor. At the funeral one of my cousins asked John Clowes's solicitor a question relating to our uncles finances and she was told (with him pointing at John Clowes) ask him he pays my fees.
My cousins estimate the estate (uncle Joe + aunty Nan) to be worth in the region of £100,000.
Below I have copied you into an email from my cousin.
John Clowes solicitors were Charltons in Biddulph, I contacted them but they said they have no knowledge of a will for Uncle Joe
