Help with the death of an executor and beneficiary (please!)

Good Evening,

Please coud I ask you all for your help please :)

The scenario is :

Four people , 3 brothers and Sister

lets call them

J,O,R and P

All live in England

J dies and leaves a will to be split evenly between O,R and P

O,R and P are named executors of the will of J

Probate is granted , house of J is put on market etc

All good so far


P dies more than 1 month after J , but before the estate is settled and payments are made

P has no will

Where does P's share of the the inheritance left by J go to ?

Does it go to O and R equally , or how does P get his share when P is dead and has no will - how does he get paid ?

Any Help would be much appreciated

Kind Regards,

Jon ...
