Some recent estimates have been made of the numbers of people who, were they to die, would leave certain kinds of surviving kin. These estimates have been made on behalf of the Law Commission in connection with their Consultation Paper Intestacy and Family Provision Claims on Death (2009) Law Commission Consultation Paper No 191. The Law Commission has reviewed the current law in these areas, posed a number of consultation questions, and made some provisional proposals for reform, inviting comment from interested parties. As part of that process, the Law Commission has sought estimates of the numbers who, on dying, would be survived by different kinds of relatives.
