I have a terraced Georgian house in Uxbridge. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Barclays . I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. Is it worth asking Barclays to clarify?

You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Uxbridge and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also enquire as to the position with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.

Should one as executor remove a deceased person's name from the title register for a property in Uxbridge?

Where a Uxbridge property is jointly owned and one of the owners dies, their name will not automatically be removed from the Land Registry title. You are not required to remove their name as when it comes to a sale your conveyancer would just need to evidence as to the reason the co proprietor is missing from the transfer, ordinarily this takes the form of a grant of probate.

With the aim of making the sale conveyancing simpler for the sale of the property you can arrange to have the deceased party removed from the title entries by applying to the land registry with evidence of the death. There is no charge from the Registry for this service.
