Massey & King have specialised in locating missing and
uncontactable beneficiaries and heirs since 1994.


  • Missing beneficiaries in intestacy cases
  • Missing beneficiaries named in wills
  • Gathering documents needed to prove a claim
  • Assisting with the administration of estates

We offer a thorough, diligent research service in intestacy cases originating within the United Kingdom, Ireland and the English speaking world. If kin exist either at home or overseas, we will find them.

 We can work on a "no win-no fee" or hourly rate basis. 

What is probate research?

Probate research is the term used for locating heirs and proving their entitlement to an inheritance.

A person may have died without leaving a will and have no immediate next-of-kin. Massey & King researches the deceased person's family to locate the nearest next-of-kin. This may be a close family member who has lost contact or a distant relation who might not even know the deceased.
