District Court Probate: find your microfilm


Please use this form to find your microfilm in the LDS archives:
Apologies for recent page-hangs (Sep 2015). I foolishly installed extra site security software, now removed. Happy searching!


Person who died:
Firstnames (optional) ---- Lastname (at least first letter)>

Court of probate:
Date of probate: NOT date of death!



This does NOT take you to wills data or images. This interface processes the date & court of probate and converts these to LDS microfilm numbers - nothing more!

The period covered is all wills proved in DISTRICT courts, England & Wales 1858-1925. Now you can view these wills FOR FREE at the London Family History Centre, South Kensington. This tool gives you the correct microfilm to request. Note: 2011 this collection is temporarily at the National Archives
