Hi Ssadi
unfortunately it's complicated.
However if it is before 1858 and in the South part of England there is a good chance you may find what you are after here:

Hi,

Thank you for posting the information to the above request, I found this very helpful, I thought the office was in York but I have lost the address and couldn't find it easily with google.

Good luck with your research

ssadi70 - did you ever order and get the wills you were interested in? Are you outside of England? I too am interested in getting a copy of several will and it looks like a complicated process if you are outside of England. The whole Sterling exchange....

Thanks, lisa
