Not that I know of. We always kept in touch but since last May it was just all of a sudden

The family haven’t heard about the will in 7 years, that doesn’t mean they haven’t been in contact with the sister about other things - like most family / siblings. Not that difficult to comprehend.

Nothing was really said as we never talked about it as we presumed she was sorting it all.
My Dad owned a house and left it to my brothers as I wasnt born yet when he created his will.
He had a new will but never got it signed before he died so my sister was getting my name put on the deeds of the house which is a simply process but that was the last I heard

there is a statute of limitations. I thought it was 6 years in your case. If it passes or has passed then you can't take legal proceedings so your position is significantly weakened. You really should talk to a solicitor.

If they deliberately weren’t notified about the contents of the will surely they have a case still?

OP, you said that probate was submitted a year after your father died. If your sister obtained a grant of probate then the will becomes a public document and you can get a copy, other posters have posted the appropriate link.

If your sister obtained a grant of probate six years ago then your options are pretty limited. I'd get a copy of the will and then talk to a solicitor.

Is the house still occupied so? By your sister & mother perhaps? Who would have lived there for many years?

No idea. I wouldn’t assume so. Have to ask a solicitor.
