    Hi
    My Mum died on 25th June leaving a large portfolio of shares. How do I find the share value of each holding from the date of her death please.

    The share prices are changing all the time, some may be worth more than they were on the 25th June and some may be less. They will all change in the next minute too.

    Looking at their prices today will give you a rough overall valuation.

    But if you look at each company holding on their investor information pages it will show historical share prices.

    There are historical prices on a few sites like yahoo and HL.

    You need to read the HMRC guidance on valuing shares at DOD for the IHT return

    Don't forget you also need to establish XD status for allocating dividends to the estate or administration period.

    A large library may have copies of the Financial Times archived, which may be quicker than looking up lots of different websites.

    Who manages the portfolio?
    My pension is with Hargreaves Lansdown and when I've needed historical information e.g. my employer paid my pension on the wrong day, they have been able to provide it.

    Providing she did not have any exotic shares, then it is vey easy to get the historic price of shares from yahoo. You just need to use the closing price.

    For example the following link gives the recent history of BP shares.
