Find the missing piece in your life & reunite with your lost relative.

Relative Connections puts you in contact with family members you may have never met, never knew existed or never thought you’d see again. When you feel the time is right, our people tracers will find a family member that you’re looking for and give you the emotional support you need to finally fill that hole in your life.

If you’re reading this, chances are there’s someone missing from your life. And perhaps there’s a huge void left where they should be…

Maybe it’s your mother or father who you haven’t seen since you were a child. Or a sibling that disappeared without a word more than a decade ago. Or, it could be your daughter or son. It could even be an auntie that you lost touch with in the last couple of years. Every situation is different, but there’s something that stays the same in every story… When you know someone’s missing, you get that nagging feeling of wanting to find them. Because how are you supposed to deal with the fact that a family member is out there living life without you? When the dining table feels that little bit emptier every birthday or Christmas? You go through phases where it’s fine and you carry on as normal. But then you can get that familiar feeling of sadness – like you’re lost – which hits you time after time. When you try and repress the feelings, do you notice that they nearly always rear their head again? And even if you’re unsure about getting in touch or you don’t think it’s the right time…

The feeling of wanting to find someone never truly goes away. That’s what’s so hard, isn’t it? You just can’t seem to let it go. But why should you? The desire for answers and acceptance only grows as the years go by.

What Reasons Do People have for trying to find lost relatives?

Maybe you’ve been awake at night, staring at the ceiling and asking yourself:

  • Why did they leave without saying goodbye?
  • Did I do something that caused them to go?
  • Why haven’t they tried to find me?
  • Would my life be different if they were in it?

We get it. And we know how you feel. Of course, every situation is unique and what you’re going through is something personal to you. It’s emotional. It’s hard. And it’s more than a little bit scary. But we’ve been here before and know how to handle it.

Sometimes it takes a major change in your life to feel comfortable taking the first step in finding a lost family member.

It could be the loss of a loved one, the birth of a child or just another celebration without them by your side. It always leads to that persistent thought of ‘what if?’.

  • What if they’re out there and really want to see me?
  • What if I could help them and give them support they need?
  • What if they have another family that I could be a part of?
  • What if they could still be a part of my family?

But more than anything…

  • What if I wait and then find out it’s too late?

Maybe, deep down, you know that now’s the right time to do something.

Because the chances of finding someone only diminish as time passes. 

Unfortunately, life sometimes gets in the way of our plans. The sooner you try to make contact, the more likely it is that your family member is out there waiting for your call. Although it may take time to build up the courage you need to take the first step – that’s okay. After all, this could be one of the biggest decisions you ever make in your life. We’ll be here whenever you’re ready. If you’re curious about how you can take the first step, we can jump on a call, learn a bit more about your story, talk you through your options and find out whether we can help you get in contact with the relative you’re looking for.

We’re here to help you reignite relationships you may have almost given up on by tracing and contacting missing family members.

If you’ve been thinking about a lost relative for a long time, finding the strength to reunite with them is possibly one of the most difficult things you’ll ever do in your life. But the end result can be truly incredible in every way… Relative Connections gives you total peace of mind that your search is being handled professionally and compassionately. We make sure every aspect of your trace runs smoothly.

Why use relative Connections to find a family member

We’re The UK’s #1 People-Tracing Company

Featured on BBC TV series ‘Family Finders’, we’re the best choice when it comes to relocating a lost relative. As seen in The Independent, The Daily Mirror and Best Magazine – as well as in our own book ‘Long Lost Family Tracing’ – you know you’re getting an industry-leading service with Relative Connections!

We Usually Find Lost Relatives in 28 Days

Our small, dedicated team has been tracing lost loved ones for more than 14 years. In that time we’ve understood how to find a long-lost relative and have helped reunite over 15,000 people – succeeding in locating relatives where Salvation Army and Interpol have failed. Even if other organisations have failed, we always find who you’re looking for – usually in under a month!

We Don’t Just Give You An Address

We think only getting contact information for your lost relative can be a cause of even more stress. At Relative Connections, we don’t just find lost relatives, we make the first move in reuniting you when we find your lost relative so you feel calm, comfortable and in control of the situation (we have a 92% success rate!).

We Never Say a Search Is ‘Too Hard’

It doesn’t matter how little information you have about a person, we’ll never dismiss your request as too difficult or not worth our time. It’s our mission to reunite as many people as possible with their lost relatives. More than anything else, we treat every search like it’s the most important we’ll ever do – with no exceptions.

We Really Do Care

You’re not just a number on a spreadsheet to us. We understand how big a decision this is and just how much it can affect your life. Hey, you might tell us things you’ve never even told your closest friends. So we want you to feel at ease with the whole situation and see some amazing results at the end of the road!

And above all… 

It’s one thing to find a lost relative, but supporting and guiding you through the whole process is what makes us different!

Finding a lost relative is just the beginning. It’s actually what comes afterwards that can be really difficult for anyone – the act of finally reaching out to them. Maybe you haven’t told people in your family that you’re trying to trace a lost relative. Or you’re in the dark as to whether they even want to hear from you. The stress, anxiety and fear can be overwhelming when you’re dealing with it alone. Even sending a Facebook request or short email can make your hands shake! What if they read it and ignore it? Did they do it on purpose? Do you have to go back to your family and say you were rejected? How would you cope with that?

Our Process for helping you find a lost relative

We provide a premium people-tracing service that delivers incredible results for our clients. We follow a simple five-step process that gives you the opportunity to reignite your relationship with that special someone. Here’s how it works…

1 .    We’ll have a friendly chat over the phone

Before anything else, we’d love to hear more about your story. And the first stage of any Relative Connections trace is actually getting on a quick call to talk about what you’re going through. Let us know as much or as little information as you can about the person that you’re looking for.

2.    We’ll review your information and see if we can help

Once we have your information, we’ll let you know on the call if it’s something we think we can help with. No search is too hard or too complex for us – but we want to make sure that we can give you the information and the results you need in an emotional and potentially difficult time.

3.    We’ll get started with your search

If we’re satisfied that we really can make a positive difference in your life and find your lost family member, we’ll confirm your search and prepare to trace your relative. We’ll explain all of our pricing options so you’re completely comfortable with the commitment. Then… We start the search!

4.    We’ll find the person you’re looking for

The Relative Connections team are experts at tracing people throughout the UK and across the world. We’ll use an array of data sources to track your exact person to their current address. And we have a range of specialist researchers both in-house and externally to ensure your trace is met with the appropriate competence and confidence.

5.   We’ll help you make contact with them

Once we’ve located your lost relative, your dedicated intermediary expert will be in touch. They’ll contact your relative and deal with their initial response before working with you both to get the best outcome. We’ll deal with it all and support you every step of the way.
