United Kingdom Unclaimed Estates

Did you have some recent ancestors who lived and died in the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland)? If you did, there just might be some form of an unclaimed asset (estate) in their name that the UK government is holding until a relative claims it. Now you can’t go back too far, there is a 30 year limit from time of death then adding 30 years for that estate to be claimed.  

The List – Just click on the ‘Unclaimed Estates List’ to download it. Then view the list of names and the information relating to each individual.

If You Have a Claim – There is a link with information of how to make a claim.

The list is updated quite often.

So see if there are any ‘forgotten’ family unclaimed estates from the United Kingdom.
