Hi Sorry, sometimes I forget to put my ID in.. and so I am the guest here. If your grandfather died in 1942, then any published works he wrote are out of copyright. If you can prove when they were written, then you can make a claim as can any party - as they are now public domain. Copyright in the UK is for 70 years after the death of the creator. You have to find some physical proof that a song existed before whoever got to it registered it with the PRS/MCPS. I can check the database, but it doesn't always show 'truth', just a series of registrations and claims.
