ILM Public Probate Data | 17 Nov

November 20, 2023

One of the benefits of the modernisation of HMCTS systems is the high quality of the data available. Unfortunately, detailed data is not available prior to the new system being introduced in 2019, so a full comparison of performance is not possible.

The data in these spreadsheets is mainly from public sources. However, we have adapted the spreadsheets combining data sets so we have unbroken data since Feb 2020. We have also included ILM calculations of the “backlog”. We define backlog as the increase in case load at HMCTS since March 2019. We calculate this by observing that historically 96% of applications result in a grant and calculating how far short of expected output the actual output has been. The ILM will continue to put pressure on HMCTS until the backlog as we calculate it returns to 0.

We hope you find these useful, please share them with anyone within your organisation who might find them interesting or useful. They will be updated monthly and made available on our website.
