it's all according to wether they left a will or not their wishes will be stated on that if they have died intestate (no will ) then probate will be granted to next of kin husband or wife even x official partner chidren next brothers and sisters cousins and neices if you are not officially adopted you will have no claim at all if not mentioned in a will
if you are being financially supported by the deceased and they have died intestate you can apply with the 1975 provision of family act which will cost you best thing to do is talk to the person who is next of kin especially if there are any keepsakes you want they may be kind enough to give you something wills are all registered you will be able to find out yourself without the expense of a solicitor if there is one the solicitor holding it will inform you if you are the benificiary hazel
