My brother died domiciled abroad, the foreign country inheritance law states parents and siblings are beneficiaries. My brother also had a UK bank account and shares in a UK business, are beneficiaries recognised under UK law (parents only) or the domiciled country law for the UK assets? The UK bank seemed to only recognise parents as beneficiaries when presented with the requested death certificate.
