Millions of pounds of unclaimed inheritance needs to be claimed from the government and it could be owed to you.

Records published by the Treasury have revealed that there are 102 unclaimed estates with links to Lincolnshire that could be worth a lot of money.

When someone dies with no will or no known family, their property will be passed on to the Crown as owner-less property.

This is called 'Bona Vacantia'. This is then known as the person's 'estate' and can range in value from very little to potentially millions. However, if nobody comes forward to claim this estate then the money could disappear into the government's accounts. But, you could be entitled to a share of the deceased person's property, or estate, if you're a relative.

The latest release published by the Treasury Solicitor has revealed that there are 102 people with unclaimed assets with links to Lincolnshire. The details on the value of their estates haven't been published.

When someone dies without leaving a valid or effective will the following people are entitled to claim the estate. - husband, wife or civil partner - children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and so on - mother or father - brothers or sisters who share both the same mother and father, or their children (nieces and nephews) - half brothers or sisters or their children - grandparents - uncles and aunts or their children - half uncles and aunts or their children.

If you notice a name on this list which you think could be a former relative then you could be in for a bit of money. It's at this point you might have to prove you're related but it could prove worth your while.

To register a claim for the estate, send a family tree to the Bona Vacantia Division of the Government Legal Department. This must show how you are related to the person who has died, and include the dates of birth, marriage and death of all those on the tree. If it appears you are entitled to claim the estate, then you may be asked to prove your relation through birth certificates etc.

Here is a list of the people who have died and their date of birth who have links to Lincolnshire. If you recognise their name then you could be entitled to claim their estate.
