Why choose us?


We work extensively with solicitors working in private client or wills, probate and trust teams and other legal sector clients. We find missing or unknown beneficiaries and provide a range of additional services.

As well as tracing next-of-kin and reuniting assets with heirs, we also find owners to empty homes and property. Our work has enabled families to reunite and relatives to attend the funerals of their missing relatives.

Finders International are regulated, ethical and responsible providers of global probate research services.
