    I'm new on this forum and would welcome some advice. Today we've been advised by the local Memory Clinic to register Mum's EPA. I understand that we have to notify relatives in a particular order. My brother and I will be her Attorneys and my father is dead. Her only remaining blood relative is a sister who she has been estranged from for 30 years. I don't even know where my aunt lives now. Mum has 4 grandchildren all over the age of 18.

    Do we have to try to find my mother's sister or could an exception be made in these circumstances?

    Thank you very much

    P11 onwards and note

    What if a relative cannot be located?
    All reasonable attempts must be made to locate the relatives
    who should be notified, in priority order. If this is not possible
    then the next most appropriate relative should be notified, to
    make up the requirement to notify at least three relatives.
    What if fewer than three relatives are alive?
    If this is the case then this should be explained on the
    application form.
