I bet they already know which box it is now that you have flagged it up and are sharing out the booty already.

When you have to shoot, shoot, don't talk.

Is there nothing in the paperwork to show the account number? Not even a bill with some of the numbers blanked out to even give a hint as to which branch (the code near the beginning of the account number will show the bank and branch).

At least it would give the bank a hint on where to start. No hint as to online banking password etc?

Maybe check with Soliciters here in Spain or UK. Also look for a will lodged in Spain.

Also ask utility companies such as water , Elecricity or at the Town House on IBI Rates .

Good Luck

Wouldn’t an executor of your Uncle’s will have legal authority to request the information from Santander in order to settle the will?

Just a thought.

1. First of all , was your Uncle a Non-resident or Resident in Spain. Did he Own or Rent a Property here in Spai.

2. Who are the Executors of  your Uncle's Will in Spain.

3. You will need to obtain copies of the last Statement for Water as well as Electricity. As these Bills are normally paid by direct debit, the Banking Details should appear on either or both  of these bills. A Gestor or Notary should be able to advise you how to obtain these copies.

4. Once these Banking Details have been established then you will have the Bank & Branch where your Uncle had maintained his Banking Account. Then if this Branch has been closed it should be easy to establish to which Branch all these Accounts were transferred to.
