Am I entitled to make a claim if I a relative by marriage? 

No, the easiest way to remember the rules are that only blood (or adopted) relatives are able to inherit under the rules of intestacy. This would include spouses of the deceased’s blood relatives, or step children who were married into the family. If anybody unrelated wishes to make a claim against the deceased’s Estate, providing that they had good reason, they would usually need to do so under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975
