Some Worcestershire Probate records were transcribed and an index to those records and a short transcription of those records can be found on a not free web site;  Probate records were only made for persons who had any amount of money or land or goods when they died. Probates were done for people who died with a will or who left an estate of any worth who did not have a will.

The information contained in the Probate Package would be the complete court records that were created for the estate of the dead.

Short transcribed Probate records can contain the names of the executor of the will and the heirs of the estates.

The National Archives of the United Kingdom has the complete will and can be ordered online.  The Probate list is indexed according to the County and judicial court.  The National Archives of the UK is searchable using surname, county, township, trade, and event, different spellings must be tried and entered to search records completely.
