Depends upon the wishes of the executor. Some executors do not advise any beneficiaries until after the grant of probate has been obtained ,..others want them to know immediately. Do you know if the grant has yet been applied for?

You can contact the probate registyr and make arrangemetns for them to advise when the will is proved.

How long is it since she died?

It's not unusual for it to take 6 months or more; how long has it been?

you can put in a standing search at the probate registry. You need the full name of the deceased,the address at the date of death, and the date of death. It costs (I recall) £7 and lasts for 6 months. You have to keep on renewing it. You'll be notified when probate has been granted.

Then you can get a copy of the will.
