You may carry out a Probate Search to see if you can get a copy of the Will and see what it says: https://probatesearch.service.gov.uk/#wills
After you get a copy of the Will, you would be able to establish whether or not you were a beneficiary.
If you were, you may ask your father as executor what is the status of your share of the estate. If you are not named as a beneficiary, you may contest the Will under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 if you were financially dependant on your grandparents.

He would not have the mental capacity to change the Will if he had dementia, so you may contest the later Will on the basis that he lacked mental capacity to make a new Will or to change the prior Will.
You would need to try and get a copy of the prior Will I am afraid as if was it was not submitted for Probate, there would be no record of it in a Public Registry.
All the best. Please leave a positive rating. Thank you
