Probate research services

We have traced thousands of missing heirs in the UK and around the world, as well as tracking down lost documents and assets.

Our researchers can piece together a complex family tree from the smallest amount of information. They liaise with a global network of over 200 agents to find missing beneficiaries or next-of-kin worldwide. Over thousands of assignments, we have achieved a success rate that is the envy of our competitors.

Anglia Research was established by Managing Director Peter Turvey, a professional genealogist of 35 years’ standing.
