Posted in Case Histories, For Relatives


Anglia Research has traced thousands of missing and unknown beneficiaries. Our methodical and detailed approach leads to successful, fair and legally sound outcomes, as this case history demonstrates.

Edward Procter died without making a will. He was a recluse who had never married and his only sibling, a brother, was killed in a car accident in his teens. It was thought that he had no next-of-kin.

After receiving details from the family solicitor, Anglia Research discovered that in fact both Mr Procter’s parents were from extremely large families. Over the next few months detailed research revealed that the deceased had 21 aunts and uncles, all of whom had children.

Eventually, Mr Procter’s estate was distributed to 86 of his distant relatives.
