Charles Reynolds died aged 92 in December 2008. He never married, had no children and had worked nearly all his life as a boiler man at the local police station. He was an incredibly reclusive, independent man and a creature of habit. He never lavished himself with expensive gifts, getting his first television set at the age of 72! The team at Frasers have their work cut out as they work the case and try to track down anyone who knew Charles, let alone any living heirs to his estate.
Heir Hunters' Hoopers also work on the heart-wrenching tale of Walter Darling - one of four siblings who were sent to the same orphanage in the 1940s but who grew up apart. Walter died in Blackpool in March 2008 and was well-loved by the local community. He was known for being a modest man and for his love of nature and the local wildlife. But just how did a man of such humble means and needs manage to amass a fortune of 55,000 pounds, and how would his long lost sister feel when she found out about her share of the inheritance not to mention looking back at a particularly painful part of her family history?
