ESA backpayments if someone had died

Hi, I don't know if anyone can help me, my dad was claiming ESA support after being migrated from incapacity benefit and they put him on contributions based. I have recently been told he should have been on income based and received the sdp as he lived on his own. Unfortunately my dad passed away in July 2016 and this has upset me that he should have been entitled. Is there anything I can do about this or will they not even look at it with him passing.
