People Searching is what we do

Find a person you fondly remember from the past. A special, irreplaceable, dear, and loyal friend. Maybe from School, Cubs, brownies, girl guides, boy Scouts, or a social friend.

How important is finding a lost friend?

It must be otherwise you wouldn’t be here! Probably you assumed fate would intervene to reconnect you. Our role is to give fate a helping-hand.

UK people finder reviews

Tracing a lost sweetheart ex-girlfriend/boyfriend can be quite obsessive. Asking themselves why and how they parted. No time to waste the sands of time is lurking.

In your case why and how did you lose contact? We bet you can remember!

Actually loss of contact with an old friend was often quite unintentional. For example: jotting their new address on a scrap of paper then carelessly losing it.

On the other side of the coin – the cardinal sin being:

Taking up with your best friends girl/boyfriend.

A so-called best friend taking up with your fiancée leaving you feeling abandoned. In reverse, I once did it too. Honour seems to vanish and selfishness takes over-in the headiness of youth. But what goes around comes around!

Who should you use to help find a lost friend?

We suggest YOU opt to use nobody but yourself. Who is better equipped and knows more about what happened than yours truly! That long-lost special friend search in your capable hands! Here is a fairly comprehensive guide which we prepared for you:

Or maybe use a professional people tracer? They all look very good, to be honest.

To find a lost friend we strongly urge you don’t just jump-in headlong. Consider all the pros and cons first. Beware of; no find no fee deals! Sound OK right? But it just doesn’t stack up. Researchers are paid £9.00 per hour=£80.00 per day. How long could they run with it? The expression “low-hanging fruit” springs to mind!

Realistically, can we help you find your old mate school friend or lost sweetheart?

We suggest taking a look at what neutrals have to say:

Which age group do most people search?

For sure lost fiends from teenage years in the 1960s. That so-called “Baby Boomer-era”. Kids of yesteryear now today’s 70-year-old and grandparents.

The Overage 80s enquiries

We see many UK ex-pats here in that age group. Seeking long-lost classroom chums, childhood sweethearts, first love, ex work-or military buddy.

Tracing a past love & the profound influential link of music.

A thought! What is it that unexpectedly triggers those semi-dormant memories of lost love, or lost friend?

We Reckon The answer is: “Music”.

You hear a certain memorable song and voice the brain regresses. Transcending into nostalgia-tinged with melancholy, and elements of sadness.

Who was “your” special soul-mate all those years ago?

What was her/his name? Where was it Clacton Pier 1959? Was her name Sandra by any chance? Listening to Russ Conway? Or maybe Pearl Carr and Teddy Johnson in the Eurovision Song Contest?
What about Winifred Atwell?
Or lastly, for now: Bernard Braden and Barbara Kelly!

When reminiscing the brain goes into overdrive.

Think of a silly joke you cracked to her/him 50 years ago. Incredibly today it’s right there again.

You both laughed then. Would you both laugh again today?

It would be worth finding your old friend just to find that out. If they do, it means they retained a special place in their heart for you too.

Another “memory jogger” is when I see kids playing on a toboggan.

Instantly I am back there again with my best buddy-Terence!

Making our way home after dark and causing anxiety amongst our parents. Terence, where are you today-mate?

That first love.

Nice memories of my first girlfriend and her lovely parents’ hospitality. Sitting in their front room sipping tea out of a bone China cup. I wonder what they must have thought of me! A weedy and pimply-faced youth.

Finding a lost friend/people search journey. What are the chances?

In a nutshell we know in most cases-pretty good! But then again we would say that. However, we cannot of course prove it either way. That’s why we do not quote any percentage of success rates. Take a look over the website and go with us or otherwise-its your call.

An interesting case spanning three continents. India-UK-Australia.

Our client had not seen his friend since childhood when attending church together back in Calcutta cca.1955.

A Lost Love – Why did I do that?

In hindsight bizarre and irrational behavior on your part. Ask yourself (we bet you can remember)-why did you and your sweetheart split? Usually a combination of early adolescence, petulance, dogma, and naivety.

People Finding – tracing lost friends is our niche!

If only there existed a parallel universe? Epitomized by this beautiful song “going back” click here: Dusty Springfield. Think of all those people you let go of. Shall we go find them again?

Searching For A Lost Friend – Time is running out.

Sadly today, us oldies (as is this author himself) wishing to reconnect with an old pal or first love, it is proving something of a race against time.

Wouldn’t you just love to see them again?

Equally, there is a high chance your Old Friend would just love to see you too? Although if you mentally badly scarred them-maybe not. There is only one way to found out-ask them!

Drawbacks when searching for a lost sweetheart

What dissuades old friends from reconnecting? Vanity and self-consciousness in how their appearance might have changed adversely. Realistically you have changed too.

Below is the same lady showed now and 50 years on. Both look lovely in different ways.

Lady now and 50 years on

Remembering an ex-sweetheart boyfriend

From our experience most people are prepared to risk damaging the memory image in order to reconnect again. Would it bother me, NO! Luckily It doesn’t seem to bother most others either-or so they say.

Although we are not promoting or suggesting such an option you could simply cheat on the outside, and turn the clock back.

Once you have reconnected Where to take it from there?

It can be a tricky one, individual and no two people are the same. But from feedback, a good start might be, exchanging memories of some daft and crazy pranks you both got up-to. Remembering favorite songs back in the day.


‘Married, kids, divorced, single, poor, affluent, widow/widower. Good health, bad health, contented? But it’s hoped this time around the friendship will endure. Take it slow and not too pushy.

Link to those who saw military service.

Were you in the military WW2? Here is a link to an excellent website. We know there will not be many (if any) of you out there.

Our only regret is our service has come too late for most of our WW2 heroes! But for the few still, with us, we would love to hear from you.
