Bristol Probate Registry Office
is part of The Probate Service. This is part of the Family Division of the High Court. It deals with ‘non-contentious’ probate business (where there is no dispute about the validity of a will or entitlement to take a grant), and issues grants of representation. These grants of representation are known as either:
- Probate (when the deceased person left a valid will and an executor is acting)
- Letters of administration with will (when a person has left a valid will but no executor is acting)
- Letters of administration (usually when there is no valid will).
These different types of grants of representation appoint people known as personal representatives to administer the deceased person’s estate.
Bristol Probate Registry typically serves Bristol, Bath, Melksham, Trowbridge, Devizes, Glastonbury Weston-super-mare. You don’t have to use a local Probate Registry though it is usually easier. Burnham on sea, Bridgewater. Portishead and Chipping Sodbury are amongst the many local towns where Bristol is pretty convenient.
