In total, 40 estates are yet to be claimed in Buckinghamshire.

Unclaimed estates are left to the government when someone does not leave a valid or effective will.

Claims are considered in order of entitlement, with spouses and civil partners top of the list.

Any relatives, including half brothers, sisters, uncles and aunts can also make claims on the unclaimed estates.

Claims can be made to the government’s Bona Vacantia division.
