Wilmslow Probate Valuations

Valuations for Inheritance Tax purposes (often called probate valuations) are an important part of administering an estate.  

We provide valuations of works of art, antiques and collectables for inheritance tax purposes in accordance with the Section 160 of the Inheritance Tax Act 1984.

A professional probate valuation does not only help to ensure your peace of mind, but it also serves many other purposes:

  • It enables HMRC to calculate the correct amount of inheritance tax payable
  • It can identify and value items listed in the will, which is useful for executors
  • It can establish the approximate value of assets, which is helpful for equitable division

“Mark Littler provides a role that has become scarce in a polarised market: the ‘one stop shop’ for an estate’s executor or solicitor.”

The History of Wilmslow

The history of Wilmslow can be dated back to around the time of the Iron Age (800 BC to AD 43), due to the important historical discovery of the preserved Lindow Man. The Lindow Man was recovered from Lindow Moss and it is believed that the Lindow Man was left in the bog between 2 BC and AD 119.   

The name of the town is attributed to the Anglo-Saxon word ‘Wīghelmes hlāw’, which has been translated to mean ‘the mound of a man called Wīghelm’. It was during the Anglo-Saxon period that the first settlement in Wilmslow can be dated.

The town was one of the eight ancient parishes in Cheshire. The oldest church in the town, St Bartholomew’s, has been dated back to the 16th century. Until the construction of the railway in 1842, Wilmslow was relatively small, with only a handful of farms.

Eventually Wilmslow was divided to form four other townships: Pownall Fee, Fulshaw, Bollinfee, and Chorley. Upon the abolishment of Fulshaw and Pownall Fee, Wilmslow was re-established in September of 1894 as a separate civil parish; consisting of all the land from Fulshaw and part of the land from Pownall Fee.

The Urban District Council of Wilmslow was founded the following year, in 1895; with the town receiving a Coat of Arms in the June of 1951. In 1936, the borders of the town changed significantly: 19 acres were given to Alderley Edge, 3 acres were gained from Chorley, 1 acre was gained from Bollinfree, 1080 acres from Handforth, and 1521 acres from Styal. In 1974, the town was almost merged into Greater Manchester, but the action was greatly petitioned against by the council.

The well-situated transport links in Wilmslow have helped to make it a thriving and very popular town. According to the 2011 census, Wilmslow is home to 24,497 residents.
