Who we are and what we do!

At Blanchard’s Inheritance Recovery we specialise in Genealogy, Probate Research and Beneficiary tracing, which is more commonly known as the BBC programme inspired term ‘Heir Hunting’.

We have a team of dedicated researchers, based in the South East of England, who together have traced thousands of missing heirs around the world, as well as tracking down lost documents and assets, estate distribution and many other probate services available to both the legal and public sectors.

We offer a wide range of expertise and are one of the only companies that are constantly renewing and updating our research techniques. Not only are we adept at the initial genealogy that most cases require, we have also obtained specialist knowledge in the field of open source intelligence. We believe that our modern methods of research, coupled with the traditional techniques that most companies use, make our ability to find someone or something almost unparalleled. We strongly believe that our unique skill set makes us very capable Heir Hunters.

Who we work with?


We may have contacted you because we believe you are to be a beneficiary to an Unclaimed Estate. We hope that the news of a potential inheritance will be welcomed but we understand that you may be a little cautious to begin with, please look around our website to confirm our legitimacy.


We provide genealogy and probate research services for solicitors dealing with an Estate. With our skills and experience we can find missing beneficiaries, whether that be via a Will or under the Rules of Intestacy. We offer a fast and reliable service to Solicitors nationwide.

Public Sector

We offer our services at no cost to members of the public sector who are faced with Intestacy. Locating next-of-kin is our specialty and with our expert knowledge and experience, we can ensure the correct relatives are found and contacted in a timely manner.
