  4. Process claim for relative who died intestate

    We were contacted by the company to advise that there was an unclaimed estate relating to my brother’s passing. We spoke to Kirsty who was not pushy and when finally we went ahead with the claim, the service was swift, very efficient and friendly. I recommend Kirsty’s company unreservedly. The cost was very reasonable and fees were charged inclusive of vat from the final amount due. This was more than fair as would have been far more expensive if the order of operations was different and vat added to the quoted percentage charge. Extremely satisfied

  6. Establishing my claim to my dads unclaimed estate

    When my father died at the end of 2015 there was so much for me to do in terms of organisation and stress, it affected my physical and mental well being, I got very sick. I had to see police, the coroner, the funeral service, the estate agent etc. All of my family were in a different city apart from my mum who was on the other side of the world, I had to use couch surfing just to have a place to sleep while I sorted it all out. After all of this was done I made it back home and was exhausted. Around that time I got a message from Kirsty Gray at Family Wise Limited which at first I found quite suspicious, about an unclaimed estate of my dads. It was something I just could not deal with and delayed dealing with it. A mutual friend of ours vouched for the legitimacy of Kirsty and her empathetic approach was professional, understanding and kind. When I was finally ready to start dealing with it I contacted her again, this time however we learned that somebody else (in my dad's strange and estranged family) had made a claim on the estate. Acting now very quickly on my behalf with piles of paperwork, sweat and effort Kirsty greased the wheels of bureaucracy and finally the whole saga has ended. She is an absolutely legend, my dad didn't have a lot of money, in fact, he had a very small amount, and still she worked just as hard on my case as anyone else's even though it was such a small amount for her. Cannot thank her enough and wish I could give her more for her efforts. So his review in some small way I hope repays her, she made a very tough situation as pleasant as it could be and worked really hard for me. Hanks Kirsty!!!

  9. Kirsty tracked me down as heir to a second cousin's estate (who had died intestate in 1999.

    Kirsty and her team were very professional and helpful. Without their diligent and dogged persistence, I would never have know this relative existed. Not only did I receive the money in this second cousin's estate (who died intestate in 1999), Kirsty put together a 19 page report of all the information she had gathered in her search to find me. Much appreciated!
