Person Tracing

The term ‘tracing’ is used to describe the process of locating details for a particular person or company, there are various types of tracing but the most common is address tracing which refers to tracing an address for an individual or company. Person Tracing Services can also be used to identify contact details such as landline numbers, mobile phone numbers and email addresses.

Accurate Results

The first thought that comes to mind when many people think about tracing services is debtor tracing as debtors have a clear motive for moving to different properties and trying to avoid detection, this isn’t always the case. When somebody moves property, changes name or contact details it is very rare that they update everybody who holds that data, this leads to companies, websites and databases holding out-dated or incorrect information and the need for tracing agents such as ourselves.Our teams skill set and experience ensure that even the most evasive of subjects can be located, we are that confident in our ability we are able to offer some of our tracing services on a no win, no fee basis (Please Call to Enquire). In addition to our tracing services we also offer process serving and surveillance services as it is often the case that once somebody has been located they need to be served with legal papers.

Case Studies

Missing Wife

We were contacted by a man who wanted a divorce with his estranged wife, he was unsure of how he would be able to file for divorce following a large period of separation. After spending a couple of years together, he and his new muse decided they wanted to get married, but their desires were hampered by the previous marriage. An issue that he had in the early years of separation was that  his wife was not born in the UK and was concerned that if she got divorced she may lose her right to live here, so at the thought of divorce she became evasive and eventually cut all contact. 

Gone Away Tenant

As a landlord bad tenants are your worst nightmare, even after putting precautions in place. The owner of a relatively modern 3 bedroom semi had been chasing his tenant for overdue rent over a number of months, they had previously been lenient as the tenant always had the perfect excuse, promising issues with work that are soon to be resolved and would be able to pay in the near future. It wasn’t until the tenant’s phone stopped accepting calls that the landlord drove to the property in attempt to speak to them. Read what he found and how our client started to rebuild from the financial loss.

Who Is My Birth Mother?

We were contacted by a woman in her late 20’s who had never met her birth mother as she was adopted at a young age, this was not new information as her parents had told her many years before. For a long time, she had sat on this information, unsure of whether she wanted to, or even could contact their mother and of course how she would go about it. The young woman decided to call us at this stage in her life as she was expecting to be a mother herself and merely wanted the opportunity to talk to her birth mother. Find out how we found that lost connection.

What Our Clients Said


We will always take as much information as possible but generally a good start is a full name, address history and date of birth. 

We appreciate that sometimes details may be limited and this by no means stops us from conducting a successful trace. 

All of our traces are conducted discreetly however sometimes if the matter is debt-related there may be a requirement for a credit search. If this is the case you will be advised of such searches and asked for permission prior to them being conducted. 

Credit searches leave a footprint on the subject’s credit file and we may need to contact the subject to gain consent before disclosing any details however you will be advised of this during our initial consultation.


For some trace enquires we offer No Win No Fee, meaning you only pay if the trace is successful. You will be advised as to whether you are eligible for a No Win No Fee Trace during your initial consultation and the general rule of thumb is that we ask for the following details:

– Full Name
– Date Of Birth
– Confirmed Previous Address (No older than 3 years)

The first step is a simple phone call. We are happy to talk to  clients over the phone, by email or face to face. This enables us to get the best understanding of your needs and assess whether we can achieve these. There are no fee’s or costs involved for consultation.
