When did you get the certificate?
Most banks will release the funds within two weeks of receiving the paperwork. How long has it been?

Are you the executor(s)?

Have you written to the banks and sent them a sealed copy of the grant of probate?

Were you thinking that once the Grant of Probate came through the money automatically was paid out?

I'm sorry, I have no idea what happened there. Could an Ed take out my excessive spaces, please?

Some banks release money before probate depending on how much is in the accounts.

For instance my late husbands bank transfered £48k from three accounts to me before probate but premium bonds wanted probate for £20k The building society wanted probate for £48k. 

As has been said you can dispose of items but should document and keep funds seperate.
