Cancellation of an unregistered will

how an unregistered / non probated WILL can be cancelled?
The person is no more alive, and will has not been probated.

can Just Endorsing CANCELLED by all the heirs amount to cancellation?

If all the heirs are at unanimity with respect to the will, they may make ideally recognise the identity of the  will and then execute a registered family settlement and supercede the same. Cancellation of any document is done on vitiating factors such as fraud/force etc and not by mutual consent.

does making of registered family settlement involve a substantial amount of  money as stamp duty?

It is to be registered with whom ? -at any registering authority's office or where the properties are located?

If all of you are agreeable go for a settlement deed or partition deed.The document is to be registered with sub registrar of your local area where the property is situated.
