We offer 2 principal methods to trace people - either you can subscribe to LocateGB and use our self service search engine to find people or for more complex cases, you can instruct one of our inhouse trace Investigators to undertake a detailed investigation on your behalf
LocateGB provides searchable access to the edited electoral roll records.
The edited electoral roll also known as the edited voters roll comprises a listing of names and addresses of persons entitled to vote in the UK. The edited version of the register only contains those persons who have consented to appear in the edited register.
The edited electoral roll is compiled each year and all eligible adults are required to register (although they may specify that they do not want their details to appear in the edited Register)
Searchable by using just a name or an address, LocateGB will return a list of matches providing at least the persons name and registered address provided they have not opted out of publication.
We are currently holding around 400 million records across our various databases. You are provided access to all of this data within your subscription package. We also provide supplemental information (where available) providing an indication of time at address, year of birth and comparable house prices.
At present, we provide the edited electoral roll from 2004 through to 2019. Increasing numbers of people are opting out of electoral roll publication but with 400 million historic records available to search, our customers enjoy a high level of success searching our records. If you cannot find a particular person then either they have chosen not to register or have opted out of publication to the edited electoral roll.
Susbscriptions are all time limited according to the package you purchase. However, we do not offer recurring subscriptions or regular rebilling. We offer susbcription periods starting from 7 days through to 1 year.
In addition to voters roll data from 2004 to 2019, we also provide you access to births, deaths and marriages records for England & Wales from 1984 through to 2005.
We also provide details of Company Directors and Company registrations.
House prices for England, Scotland and Wales are provided from the year 2000 onwards and are updated monthly.
Locate GB is provided without warranty as to accuracy or omissions. The results are drawn from the edited electoral roll in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014,2015, 2016 & 2017 , 2019 and as such, certain individuals may have opted not to allow their details to be published. Similarly, certain individuals may have chosen not to register. Upon purchase of a subscription, the information is made available to you immediately upon screen. As such, and in accordance with distance selling regulations covering electronic access and download, there is no cooling off period or right of cancellation. There is no obligation to continue after the subscription period. Additionally, you will find no adverts and we will not send you emails or pass your details to any other organisation.

Our searchable directory of people living in the UK provides a current and historic address for many individuals across the country. Simple and easy to use, you need enter only a name or additional refinements such as an area or part or full address. Our people search engine will scan over 400 million records and return the results to you on screen within a split second. Records held in LocateGB are mainly drawn from the edited version of the current & historic electoral roll - now referred to as the Open Edited Register. This is produced each year and comprises of persons registered to vote who have not opted to supress their details. Some people do opt to suppress their registration on the edited register but a large percentage of individuals are still recorded on either the current or previous editions of the edited voters register.
We provide access to all of the edited open electoral registers back to 2004 (compiled late 2003) right the way through to the current 2019 register - that's a lot of data! This gives you the ability to identify the current or former address for many people. Unlike our competitors, we don't operate a search credit system. You purchase timed access (min 24 hours) and search as many times as you want without restriction.
We won't sell you a recurring subscription. Choose the period you want access for, sign up and that's it,once it expires you need take no further steps. You won't need to cancel and we will not auto renew your membership. By all means, renew if you so wish but the choice is entirely yours.

Remember, should LocateGB not hold the address you need, we also offer traditional manual trace investigations - these are 100% confidential and provides you with access to one of our experienced Trace Investigators who will locate your subject in a timely, professional and cost effective manner.
