Once these are issued does anyone know how soon these are posted out?

     You asking about DWP funeral grant? 

     Mine was sent directly to the funeral director and took about 3 weeks

    The twice I've done Probate in the last couple of years, I got the paper grants in the post about 48 hours after getting the email saying Probate had been granted.  So I found it very quick - but I know from other threads here that others have experienced longer delays in the paper arriving.
  • They state "You should receive the Grant of Probate in the post within 10 working days"
