      John, I'd advise that you contact your broker since GCB has been paying dividends regularly, the latest being 38p per share announced in May 2017.

    Hi, I bought gcb shares Long time ago. I haven’t been able to follow the trends of gcb’s financial performance for a while and don’t know the status of my shares. How do I go about this to know the value and states of my investment now

    My father bought shares in 1996. He's been deceased since 1998. Can these shares be passed on to family today?

      Yes. Your father must have had share certificate proving his shareholding. Otherwise, then contact the stock broker in question. However, I'd assume that he'd mention something like this in his will as to whom they should go to or something...
