Probate Research

Probate research involves researching and locating heirs to often unclaimed or contested inheritance.  EMG Investigations combines historical research and private investigative skills to offer a swift and reliable service that can be legally tested following numerous family lines.  Our head researcher has worked for over twenty years in this field and is experienced in complex and unusual cases in England and Wales.

The majority of our cases are in England and Wales, and being based in Central London we are able to act quickly and cost effectively when using archives that may not have been digitised such as those in the London Metropolitan Archives in Central London and the National Archives at Kew.

We will keep you regularly informed in emailed updates and can provide a full written report once we have completed our research.   Unlike many probate researchers, we do not charge a percentage of the inheritance as we only charge for the hours we work on your case.

We always work within the parameters of the law, and conduct ourselves to a high ethical standard.  We are registered with the ICO, have professional indemnity insurance and our principal is a full member of the Association of British Investigators, the only investigations association endorsed by the Law Society.

We offer an initial email or telephone consultation, without cost or obligation and can be reached on the contact details below.
