Remember we offer a service to find the exact person you have lost touch with, if you are interested in our UK People Finder Service then we would love to show you what we could do.

If you want to know how to find people online there are things you can do. It really depends on the reason you are looking for the person and how long it has been since you last saw them. Let us say you are looking for an old friend and you last saw them forty years ago. Therefore, the first thing you need to do is write down the key information about the person you are looking for, as this will dictate how you try to locate them. Write down the following information (don’t worry if you don’t have it all)

  • Their full name – Could they have gotten married and changed it? Do you know their middle name?
  • The last address they lived at
  • Their age or ideally their Date of Birth
  • Their partner’s name – Did they get married?

These are the key facts you need to locate someone.

If you have drawn a blank with the electoral roll it leaves you a little bit stuck, this is where our powerful systems that are not publicly available come into play, we can search for a person by just their name and date of birth, this is not something you will be able to do. We also have access to the biggest database of non-credit based location information available in the UK. We can perform an unlimited amount of searches on your behalf and can search for two people (a double name match), we can do so much more, but if you still want to continue on your own path what else can you do to learn How to find people?

You would be wise to check Facebook, Facebook has over 400 million users meaning that if its users were citizens of a country it would be the third biggest county in the world in terms of population. People of all ages are on Facebook and it is free to register. You will find people you have lost touch with on Facebook even if you don’t find the exact person you were looking for you should be able to reconnect with lots of other people, some of whom will no doubt know the person you were looking for.
