Somerset Live : These are the 102 surnames entitled to unclaimed fortunes in Somerset

Somerset-Live

According to an online database, there are 112 estates in Somerset that are currently sitting unclaimed with the Government.

And if you’ve got the right surname, you can make a claim to one of them.

Members of the public are mostly unaware that the details of thousands of unclaimed estates are recorded and kept online, and there are 102 surnames listed in Somerset locations.

All the information is kept on a spreadsheet that can be accessed by anyone.

If a person passes away without first making a will or with no named next of kin, the Government is responsible for taking care of that person’s estate.

The database shows that there are currently 112 unclaimed estates in Somerset that bear 102 different surnames – one of which could be your family name.

Some of the estates have been listed by the Government for decades, and will revert to the Crown permanently if they remain unidentified.

According to Finders International – a specialist probate genealogist team – family members and heirs have just 12 years to claim the estate once it has been declared unclaimed to the Crown.

Any member of the public can check the Central Probate Registry online at any time to see if any next of kin are on the unclaimed list.
