Does the death of Grandson C before probate mean that his share of the inheritance is distributed among A, B, and D? | LawHive - Solicitors & Lawyers Online
Does the death of Grandson C before probate mean that his share of the inheritance is distributed among A, B, and D?
Hi, I would really appreciate if some will & probate experts could help with some clarification on this matter: (Please look at the photo of the will segment for reference) Grandson C has passed away 6 weeks after his Grandparent’s passing and before probate or the inheritance process was started. Does this mean his share has failed and is shared among A, B and D pro rata as referenced to the will photo, or with C outliving his Grandparent, would his inheritance still go to his estate and be claimed by his next of kin? Grandson C has unfortunately not left a will, is not married or had children but he is survived by his Mother and Sister/Granddaughter B. Thanks in advance and any help would be appreciated.

CILEX Sorry for your loss 😔 Do you know if there’s a survivorship clause anywhere? Something that says something like “if any of my beneficiaries do not survive me by 30 days…” If not, then Cs share will be payable to his estate.
