Pinter's estate was £4,335,984.  In his will he left most of his money to his wife, and she also has the literary rights to his works.
- His estranged 51-year-old son Daniel is left a cottage and £300,000.  The two did not speak and the son did not attend Pinter's funeral.
- Lady Antonia’s three sons and three daughters were left £10,000 each in the will.
- Pinter also left £1,000 to the touring Gaieties Cricket Team, of which he was chairman, stating that they should use it ‘in the purchase of a few new balls’.

Pinter's grave now has a temporary plaque on it.  Photos soon (when I work out how to get them from my phone to my computer).
