Calendar of the Grants Probate and Letters of Administration made in the Probate Registries of the High Court of Justice in England. 1861-1941

These records have been transcribed from the probate books in Birmingham Library and from images of those books available online at ancestry.co.uk. I have used the following abbreviations.

Probate ( P )
   Issued to one or more executors named in the Will.

Letters of Administration (with Will) ( AW )
   Issued when there is a Will but the executors named in the Will are no longer able or willing to apply for Probate.

Letters of Administration ( A )
   Issued when no Will has been made or if the Will is invalid.
