Dear Madam,

Thank you for your enquiry. Your entitlement to nationality in this case would not be through your grandfather directly and would depend on the nationality of your parents. I would need further information to confirm whether you have an entitlement to British Nationality.

A solicitor will contact you shortly to discuss your matter further.
