Trace a long lost friend UK.
Find a lost friend, a childhood sweetheart, people search for a long-lost love, teenage best friend, a very first love, school, or simply an old friend. People finder assignments is indeed our niche market.
People Searching is what we do.
Get in touch with absent friends. Those special dear and loyal friends and /or lost loves who somehow escaped along life’s journey. Perhaps someone from Schooldays, Cubs, brownies, Girl guides, or boy Scouts, or a social friend.
How important is finding a lost friend?
We know that after 40 years or more people assume fate will intervene to naturally bring you back together again-maybe! If it doesn’t happen, then it’s our job to give fate a helping hand.
Our over 60s clients tell us
Tracing a lost sweetheart can become quite obsessive. Many remember vividly, how, why, where, and when they parted. With the sands of time running out there is no time to waste.
How did you lose contact in the first place?
Actually loss of contact with an old friend was often quite unintentional. Like, jotting their new address on a scrap of paper then losing it.
Or, the cardinal sin being:-
Taking up with your best friends girl/boyfriend.
A so-called best friends taking up with your fiancée leaving you feeling abandoned. In reverse, I once did it too. “What goes around-comes around!”
Who should you use to find your lost friend?
We suggest YOU. Who better than yourself to search for your long-lost special friend! Here is a simple guide we created click here
Or use a professional But which one? They all look very good to be honest.
However, a word of warning! We noted some offering “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. That’s just for the employees time! Might work if they find them quickly.
Changing the subject:- A video showing one of our people finding cases.
Not exactly a “Spielberg “classic which in a way adds to its charm. https://friendsreconnected.co.uk/finding-mums-old-friend/ depicting two ladies from the W.R.N.S. whom we reunited after 40 years.
Can we help you find your old mate school friend or lost sweetheart?
A warm welcome to Sarah.

Which age group do most people search?
For sure the teenagers of the 1960s that so-called “Baby Boomer-era. Kids of yesteryear now today’s 70-year-old + grandparents.
Were you yourself a teenager of the 1960s

The Over age 80s enquiries
Paradoxically, we see many UK ex-pats from Australia and N.Z. Many now over age 80 seeking:- a long-lost classroom chums, childhood sweethearts, first love, work, or a military buddy. Lovely to see them here.
Tracing a past love & the profound influential link of music.
A thought! What is it that unexpectedly triggers those semi dormant memories of a lost love or lost friend?
We Reckon The answer is:”Music”.
A certain memorable song which leads the brain to regress. Transcending into nostalgia, melancholy, and often sadness. Crystallising the loss of a special friend from long ago.
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?
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 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. In their front room sipping tea out of a bone China cup. I wonder what they must have thought of me! Weedy and pimply faced.
Finding a lost friend/people search journey. What are the chances?

When you are done- there is more!
Sweden this time! Maria from Gothenburg and John from the UK:-Read John’s story:- click here Not seen each other since 1961 on a beach in Eastbourne. She reminded us of Abba. This search is still unresolved.
A Lost Love | Why did I do that?
A broken teenage romance why did they split? Usually a combination of early adolescence, petulant dogma, and naivety. The male psyche aka “James Dean” and treat them mean!
People Finding | tracing lost friends is our niche!
If only there existed a parallel universe? Epitomised by this song “going back” by Dusty Springfield. Think of all those people you let go. Shall we go find them?
The 1960s and other memories: This quite unforgettable car!
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 is becoming something of a race against time.
Wouldn’t you just love to see them again?
Equally, no doubt wouldn’t your Old Friend just love to see you too? Maybe not, but there is only one way to found out-ask them!
Drawbacks when searching for a lost sweetheart
What dissuades old friends from reconnecting? Vanity, self-consciousness, embarrassment at how their looks have changed.
Here is an example of the effects of ageing. You left her as a teenager today you are both pensioners.
Remembering a former sweetheart/boyfriend.
From our experience people are prepared to risk damaging the memory image in order to reconnect again. Would it bother me, NO! It doesn’t seem to bother them either.
Once you have reconnected Where to take it from there?
A good start could be:- mutually recollecting some daft and crazy pranks you both got up-to. Remembering favourite 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.
