Can I make a claim against an Estate held by the Crown? 

Yes. All intestate estates (except those in the Duchies of Cornwall and Lancaster*) that have passed to the crown are handled by the Government Legal Department. 
You can find a list of unclaimed Estates on gov.uk, here. If there is an Estate which you believe should be unclaimed and it is not listed on gov.uk, contact them directly to discuss these details with them. 
If you think you may be entitled to a share of the deceased’s Estate under the Rules of Intestacy, you can make a claim with the Government Legal Department, here
 
*Intestate Estates in the counties of Cornwall and Lancashire are dealt with by Farrer & Co, on behalf of the Crown.
