Could you please confirm if your Husband has left a Will or not?
A person who dies without a will is known as ‘dying intestate. If your Husband has no will, so to sort his estate you need to apply for a ‘grant of letters of administration’ - also known as a grant of probate.
The first step in applying for probate involves getting hold of certain documents and make copies of it. The documents including-
marriage or civil partnership certificate, if the person was married
You’ll need to attach copies of these various documents to probate forms PA1A , and to access your husband’s bank accounts, and other assets.
Please click below for the relevant PA1A form-
I hope this helps.

You need to check with the Bank for ISA , if you are named nominee in the account, then you would need the probate, as rest of the accounts are in the joint name.
