Wealth at Death

Use the Wealth at death search to search through our records of assessments of the wealth of people in the dictionary at the time of their death.

First, choose a type of record: Official records are assessments made at death for tax purposes; any other assessment is classed as Other; or you can choose to search All records.

Enter a value (in £) in the Amount field; use the dropdown to qualify as less than or equal to (<=), equal to (=), or more than or equal to (>=).

Many assessments do not include monetary figures: search for descriptive words (such as bankrupt, wealthy) in the description field.
