COULD you be the rightful owner of an unclaimed fortune which belonged to someone who has passed away in Pembrokeshire?

There are millions of pounds of unclaimed money and property which have been left in the care of the government.

These estates are known as Bona Vacantia, or vacant goods, and pass to the crown when someone does not make a will and has no known next kin.

There are currently 16 unclaimed estates on the list which belonged to people who died in Pembrokeshire.

No-one knows who these people’s closest relatives are, but if you think you recognised one of the names on the list below as a close relative, you can contact the Treasury to make a claim.

The Bona Vacantia Division of the Treasury accepts claims up to 30 years after the date of death.

For more information about unclaimed estates visit the Treasury website.
