Family Relationship Chart

What exactly is a Second Cousin — or a First Cousin Twice Removed?

Since 1992 we have produced our ‘Family Relationship Chart’, illustrating those relationships and their entitlement to share in an English or Welsh intestate estate.

Described by one succession law textbook author as “one of the clearest diagramatic charts ” he had seen, our chart has been widely distributed within the legal profession and continues to be referred to by many legal professionals, on a regular basis. Indeed, we still occasionally hear of copies of the original editions surviving in office desk drawers, more than twenty years on!

We no longer produce the chart as hardcopy – but the relationship chart itself is still available on our website. Just click the image below, to download a PDF copy.
