Find a Person

Tracing a person in the UK can often be a tricky task. It can appear to be straight forward, especially with the availability of the internet and social media, but it can also require quite a bit of time and investigative work. The more information you have about a person that you want to locate, usually the easier it is. Whether you are looking for a long lost friend or family member, or someone that owes you money, we can use the information you provide by utilising meticulous and discreet processes in making enquiries upon your behalf.

We can find people quickly and efficiently using a vast range of resources that we have access to that are not generally available to everyone. We can search electronic records from public bodies and credit reference agencies for an e-trace (£19.50), follow up on enquiries for a more in-depth trace (£35.00) and attend addresses, take photographs or videos for a doorstep trace (£175.00). Depending on the information you have and the level of service you require, we can help in your search.

Please select the service you require from the options below, and click “start here” to provide us with your information.

Whichever service you require, we will send you a report with all the information that we have collected.

If you are looking for more than one person then our batch trace option may be the service that best suits you, please contact us to find out more about this or any part of our service.
