England and Wales probate index 1858-1941

Ancestry.co.uk has put part of the National Probate Calendar for England and Wales online as Index of Wills and Administrations 1861-1941, but it has some gaps.

The Society of Australian Genealogists and some other large libraries have the full National Probate Calendar 1858-1941 on microfiche. It includes all the years that are missing from Ancestry's database (1858-1860, 1863, 1868, 1873, 1876, 1877, 1883, 1888, 1899-1903, 1910-1911). Most index entries include the deceased's full name, date and place of death, probate date and registry where issued. Some give other details (deceased's address and occupation, executor's name and occupation, etc.)

Some post-1941 indexes are at LDS Family History Centres.
