Yes, general legal notice will not do. He will have to apply for Succession Certificate.

File suit for grant of succession certificate only then you will get rights to operate the locker.

Since both are dead and have not nominated any body, their legal heirs can get succession certificate through court.  When the legal heirs submit  succession certificate to  the  Bank, the Bank gives access to the legal heirs to the locker.
