Many of us sometimes stop, and wonder after so many years have passed how life turned out, for that once very special long lost friend.

Find An Old Friend.

Questions you might wish to first ask yourself. If I do succeed in finding my absent friend what lies in store?

Amongst a host of many others questions:- Are they married, divorced, single, widow/widower. Good health, bad health, contented. Intriguingly, how much have they changed: physically, mentally, rich, poor, or comfortably off? Or perhaps, sadly, no longer with us.

Ironically, today you may have unknowingly passed that very same person in the street. Now, that’s a thought!

People Search

Not an easy task with more than 60 million people living in the UK. We liken it to searching for: that proverbial: “needle in the haystack”. Your missing friend could be living just around the corner, or equally, some: 12000 miles away.

To add to the conundrum most “lost friends” at least (of the female genre) have on at least one occasion changed their surname.

Give it a go! That is if you feel up to wading through all those maybes, ifs, but’s, dead-ends etc. It will certainly keep you occupied for some time.

Find People  |  From your past

In theory, anyone can become a people finder There are no formal qualifications.

However, unfortunately, the Internet and social media have lulled people into thinking its a simple 5-minute job. Just make a few keyboard clicks, here, and there and Voila! Hmmmm…..

In case you are wondering, no,….we don’t charge by the hour! Click here for our charges:https://friendsreconnected.co.uk/trace-a-lost-friend-uk/

People Finder | What we have learned.

Here is some feedback from a typical client:- “Thanks for enabling me to make peace with my long lost sweetheart. The guilt and shame at my bad behaviour never left me.

Despite more than 40 years elapsed since we last met I still can’t believe how callous and uncaring I was towards you. That once so special person. Maybe some of you can relate to this.”

Today if at all possible, many of our enquirers want to grab this unexpected second chance to put it right. Despite being fully aware, they might well receive a rebuff. To find a lost friend. Yep…the clock is ticking.

People often state they wish to tell them what an idiot they were to let them go.

accepting after 40 years has elapsed you cannot just resume where you left off- that is passe!

In many instances, today there is a desire to reconnect as nothing more than genuine friends. Which of course you were-once. With a solemn promise to stay in contact THIS TIME.

People Finder Services  | Often we need to travel back decades

Our searches are unlike most others we “dig as far back as the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s.

Apart from one or two such as “Finder Monkey” they are mainly digital traces.

With most competitors, a pre-requisite is a full and accurate name and an address within the last 5 years. In contrast, we work sometimes off no surname, no address, no town of residence.

In every case, we carry out endless checks and cross-checks. Including historical archive searches, births, marriage, divorces, ships passenger lists, death certificates, to name but a few.

Why Hire a professional people tracer?

Because to find a long lost friend is very much a niche skill. You need knowledge, experience, lateral thinking, and crucially knowing where to look. Thus, circumventing most of the dead-ends.

Reconnecting old friends

People Search is quite varied, and complex:-

It may surprise you to know much of our efforts are not on social media,

Instead, involving a substantial amount of old-fashioned “Mr Plod” style foot-soldier investigations.

Actually in the people finding business digital is far from the magical panacea people assume and expect. With huge gaps to fill in.

For example “free” software.

Very limited scope. You have the person’s name, but the software throws up more question than answers.


Does effectively supplements the information we already have. Giving us valuable access to other family members. Perhaps a son/daughter who can often unlock the puzzle.

How long is my people search project likely to take?

Anything from one day to 6 months. On average, working solidly- its three days.

Take a look at some of our actual case studies to gain an idea what is involved in people finder searches click here

If that doesn’t work we start again- to see if we missed anything. Going forward, backward, sideways, or turning it all upside down!

GDPR. All traces are fully compliant

Creative thinking we excel at.
