Wills dating back to 1858 made available online for £10

Millions of wills, including those of Charles Dickens, Winston Churchill and Princess Diana, have been made available online.

Dating back to 1858, they form part of a database for people to find out about their own family history, as well as looking up those of famous and influential people.

Wills have always been public documents and the existing £10 fee for each document also applies to downloads.
