The address given for the testator is the postal address at which they normally resided, not the place of death - though it is entirely possible that your grandmother died at home (her death certificate will have that information). The probate office referred to is the one to which the executor(s) applied for the grant. In this case, it suggests that your grandmother’s executor(s) lived closer to Oxford than to Leeds, the nearest one to Doncaster. The Will itself would supply information about the executor(s).
