Find who you're looking for – quickly, cheaply, efficiently.

Fraser & Fraser is one of the world's largest firms of professional Genealogists & Probate Researchers with a worldwide network of correspondents complementing its European offices. We are the only UK probate firm with both a qualified solicitor and a chartered building surveyor in-house and have been recognised by public trustees, solicitors and probate courts as experts in probate research for over 85 years.

With international access to records of all types, we can help you trace beneficiaries and their successors, locate missing shareholders or co-owners of land, obtain up-to-date addresses and much more. Fraser & Fraser is one of the key firms featured in BBC1's Heir Hunters documentary. 

All the staff photos on this website were taken at our London office in 2009. 

Please note: Fraser & Fraser very rarely establish contact with beneficiaries by email.

We are aware that there is an e-mail scam from someone purporting to be an employee of Fraser & Fraser, Alan Riches, currently circulating. Alan is an employee of Fraser & Fraser however he did not send the email titled “Hello”.
We have also seen a similar email from Roger Marsh or Noel McHugh subject: "RESPONSE NEEDED". Both Roger and Noel are employees of Fraser & Fraser but do not make contact with heirs directly.
We are doing our best to thwart the efforts of this fraudster.
Thank you!

Just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work. I am so pleased with the family tree as well.
Mrs. France (Beneficiary), Clacton-on-Sea. 25 March 2012








Our experience in investigative procedures enable us to undertake the detection of many unusual and complex estates which are later reported in national and local press, and we are often asked our opinion on important genealogy-related issues of the day.
