Finders International Probate Genealogists
Finders are one of the world’s leading firms of international probate genealogists. We trace missing heirs and next of kin for Lawyers, Corporate & State Trustees, Councils, Administrators, Executors, Hospitals, Coroners & others needing to identify and locate beneficiaries to estates, funds and assets worldwide.

No Known Next of Kin?


We have a tried & trusted solution to the problem of the Deceased reportedly having ‘no living relatives’, whereby you won’t incur any risk or fees, whilst observing best practice.

In the majority of cases there are living and entitled next of kin somewhere; they may be very distantly related or living abroad and they may have never even heard of the Deceased, but they are still legitimate beneficiaries. We can usually find next of kin extremely quickly, often within days, and at our own risk and expense.

If you are a lawyer or other professional we can also help secure instructions for your firm to administer the estate. Any costs you may have already incurred can then be recovered and further work generated.

The Crown or State has no interest in an Estate where a valid Will is found, or heirs exist in accordance with Intestacy Law.  The Bona Vacantia division of the Government Legal department (previously the Treasury Solicitor’s office) will not deal with an Estate where there is known to be, or likely to be, entitled relatives even if these have subsequently died, cannot be traced or do not wish to deal with the Estate.

Councils and others needing assistance can have next of kin located by us too, all free of charge.
