If the value of your lost, stolen, or destroyed share certificate is below £100,000, Equiniti, the registrar can arrange for the issue of replacement certificates. Simply contact Equiniti as soon as you can, quoting your shareholder reference number (SRN) if possible, and request a letter of indemnity. You will also need to pay an administration fee and a countersignature fee (which will be dependent on the value of the lost share certificate) to receive a replacement share certificate.
If the value of the missing share certificate is greater than £100,000 you will need to source bespoke indemnity arrangements directly with an appropriate insurance provider before a replacement share certificate will be issued.
You should write to Equiniti, sending a certified copy of the death certificate, together with the original Grant of Probate (or a sealed office copy), or the Letters of Administration.
Alternatively, you can call Equiniti, to report the death of a shareholder and speak with an agent directly to discuss the steps required.
