My 62 Ancestors Legacy Log

One of my recent challenges has been searching for all my ancestors’ probate records, also known as a grants of representation. These are currently available on the government website https://probatesearch.service.gov.uk at ยฃ1.50 each for any person who died after 1857. As you can see I completed everyone on my #62Ancestors list and only two had a probate record: my grandfather Henry Whitehead and my 3 x great grandfather James Hodge. I have to admit that this does not surprise me, given the large number of burials in communal graves which I’ve found in my graveyard challenge.
