Description

This series consists of deceased estate files (will and intestacy files) administered by the Public Trustee in Cairns, and previously by the Public Curator in Cairns.

Documents in the files may include statements of account including succession duty, and may include death and other certificates as well as wills and related documents and correspondence. Also included are files marked "F" (Sec. 35) and "B" (No Grant), in which Sec.35 refers to small estates which at the time had assets valued at less than $5000 excluding land; and No Grant refers to estates where real estate was the only asset that required administration and it was not necessary to apply to the court for a grant.
