Update 16th December 2019 from the Ministry of Justice:

Modernisation of Face to Face Service Provision in Probate

We are writing to inform you of the changes made to our provision of face to face services in our Probate Offices commencing December 2019.

The  changes  being  proposed  will  allow  us  to  increase  efficiency  in  the processing of Probate applications by ensuring that more of our resources are focused on getting this done quicker. They will also mean that your visits to the office  will  be  limited  to  only  those  that  are  essential  therefore  removing unnecessary and wasted journeys. These changes will allow staff to allocate the correct time for customer who do need face to face assistance.

These changes have been made in Civil & Family Courts across England & Wales & are in accordance with the Framework for the Provision of Front Office Services in the Civil Courts issued September 2008. – Newcastle Probate Registry

I  am,  therefore,  writing  to  advise  you  that  with  effect  from  Monday  16  December  2019  we  plan  to  permanently  change  the  face  to  face  service provisions within Newcastle Probate District Registry as follows:

Work which requires a face to face service from court staff and where there is currently no alternative method of providing that service will be dealt with at the following times:

Monday to Friday from 9:30am to 4:00pm Processes which may need to be dealt with in person are:

Deposit of Will
Swearing of Affidavit
Inspection of Wills

Access to this service provision will be limited to only these classifications of work.

Newcastle Probate District Registry will no longer process routine work which does not require a face to face service provision and you will be diverted to the  alternatives which are already in place such as on-line services, telephone, email and post.
