Who or what is in charge of wills and other documents in Britain?

I know it’s a weird question, but I’m writing a book and I need to know something. There’s a steel mill in Britain and the ownership is undetermained. The main character finds the will of the old owner but I don’t know where she would go after that…who would she tell if she found the offical will to the ownership of steel mill?

      Attorneys who help people establish their last will and testament usually keep these documents in a safe place under their control.
      Should they not be around (due to such events as their own death), another legal practitioner will have taken over their practice and help with the settlement of the will.
      If beneficiaries and/or those who think they should have been beneficiaries, have disagreements over the terms of the will and what they (fail to) receive – it can be contested in a court of law.
