Customer Question

My mother died over Christmas (in a care home). She had told me that there was 'something in her will' for me. However, I think her late second husband's brother is acting as execter and I have been excluded from any info regarding her last will. I have a copy of a much earlier will where I am named as a beneficiary. How do I go about finding my late mother's last will and checking that I am not being excluded from any entitlement please?
