Our search algorithm is both powerful and flexible.

You can search our people databases with as little as a first name and partial date of birth or last name and partial date of birth anywhere nationwide.

Search results are limited to 300 so in the case of a full postcode address search, it is restricted to either a house number or house name or full postcode and either surname or first name

Electoral Roll Data

Modern Electoral rolls since 2002/3 have been subject to some privacy protection. Today the UK has the following type of electoral roll:

  • a. Open – No privacy restriction – available for purchase by any person or organisation for any lawful use.
  • b. The full electoral roll. This record contains Everyone’s name and address within the full version of the electoral register.

The full version of the register is only used for:

  1. Elections
  2. Preventing and detecting crime. The police and the security services can also use it for law enforcement.
  3. Checking applications for loans or credit
  4. Jury summoning in England, Wales and Northern Ireland

The open register is an extract of the electoral register but is not used for elections. It can be bought by any person, company or organisation. For example, it is used by businesses and charities to confirm name and address details. The personal data in the register must always be processed in line with data-protection legislation. Common use of electoral roll data.

Find missing or out of contact family members. We also see plenty of searches made on our website by users with the aim of locating contact information for our client’s ex services friends or old school friends for an upcoming school reunion.

Business Data

Businesses use our data to confirm address residency records for current and potential new clients. Often people make an order and forget to provide contact telephone data. Problems with an order necessitate the company to seek to speak with the client to ensure no undue delays.

One unfortunately common use of our website is the need for close family to a bereaved person to make contact with persons who may want to attend a funeral at short notice. In these circumstances we try our very best to ensure we facilitate that contact in the speediest possible way.

Probate and or asset reunification

Our electoral roll databases are augmented by Open Source Intelligence (OSINT). There is no mystique (OSINT is data collected from publicly available sources to be used in an intelligence context.

OSINT under one name or another has been around for hundreds of years. With the advent of instant communications and rapid information transfer, a great deal of actionable and predictive intelligence can now be obtained from public statutory or otherwise public sources.


Probate researchers are one of the largest users of our services. The industry built around searching for the surviving family members of the bereaved Is big business in the UK. Our innovative search tools allow probate researchers to search for and successfully trace the most difficult of maternal and paternal family lineage.

Debt recovery

Our databases will enable business to achieve better debt recovery, with less time spent tracing debtors.

Most UK companies experience delays in chasing outstanding debts as a result of out-of-date customer contact details? And this impacts upon cash flow.

Have you lost contact with customers who have changed address without notifying you? Essentially these clients may not be debtors, they may have merely moved address and forgot to notify you.

Our innovative databases allow you to locate and contact more of your otherwise ‘uncontactable’ customers, giving you the opportunity to collect debts that would otherwise have been written off, or passed onto a third-party tracing agency or Debt Collection Agency (DCA)

Family Tree

Historical research is both fascinating and informative and can be addictive in the quest to put the jig saw puzzle of life together. Our historical researchers have painstakingly linked millions of family members within the UK from all known information to enable the family tree architecture to show at a glance the ancestral lineage.

Genealogist always compose a family tree when looking to trace the lineage of a family or individual. The family tree shows to the Genealogist pictorially the line of descendants of a particular ancestor or family unit and makes it easier to spot any mistakes in the core historical research.


Family trees are often presented with the oldest generations at the top and the newer generations at the bottom. Our tree format is slightly different because we focus on one principal target in the tree and then construct the tree from that perspective. That enables you to focus your research upon aspect of tree but crucially you can still move within the tree to any other stem asynchronously.

What Is A family Tree In The Normal Architecture

An ancestry chart, which is a tree showing the ancestors of an individual, will more closely resemble a tree in shape, being wider at the top than the bottom. In some ancestry charts, an individual appears on the left and his or her ancestors appear to the right. A descendancy chart, which depicts all the descendants of an individual will be narrowest at the top. The tree we will present will potentially go both up and down more like a starburst rather than a conventional tree structure. The end result is similar but more informative
