Trace Lost Friends

Where are you, my old friend? – Trace Lost Friends is what we do. As we enter a new year I often wonder how many of my old friends are still out there – somewhere! Remember Carnaby Street, 1967!

Tracing long-lost friends

If I could somehow achieve it- I would love to reconnect with all of them. Why you may ask?

Apart from the sheer joy of just meeting up again, the appeal is to exchange stories about their life experiences. Not to mention catching up on so many memories.

Time dictates that at the age of 74 some old contemporaries, such as myself may soon disappear.

Without sounding morbid, before appearing in some obituary notice we should at least try to find that lost buddy.

Yes, people are born, and others die that’s, life and how it goes! But, I find myself more and more driven towards reconnecting with those long lost friends once again. I would love to find out how they are, how life has treated them, etc..

I am conscious that At my age – 74, Its a race against time and I intend to do my best. Maybe nostalgic, but to be able to just shake their hand once again, and make sure we stay in touch this time.

People Tracer|find an old flame

You yourself can become a people tracer. Indeed we would be delighted to assist you in this mission. It can be very compelling and an all-consuming pursuit. Curiosity, for example, is a strong driving force. We wonder how your lost friend might look today, compared to how they looked all those years ago.

Not to be critical or in any way disappointed. After all we all age, just some, better than others. Indeed I myself am quite unrecognisable, from how I looked some 50 years ago.

Actually, I personally would not give a damn how many of my old friends have fared- appearance-wise. It’s still the same person inside and that’s the important part. Hopefully, my current appearance wouldn’t bother them either.

An early teenage sweetheart is unforgettable, unique, and something special.

Even in the event, the relationship didn’t end well you were once ‘an item’. These memories some good, and other not to so good are enduring and seem to strengthen as time goes by.

However be realistic, that person is lost in your life and you cannot go back in time. There is – no “time machine”.

Often the driving force to reconnect with a lost friend is guilt, on your part.

Especially AS you feel it’s you, who let them down. Of course, do keep in mind (even after 50 years has elapsed) they may still harbour a grudge towards you.

To trace lost friends

If it’ something you feel is important, profound and “you must do” then we can often help in reconnecting you. Sometimes the search can be amazingly easy and in other cases its taken-YEARS to achieve. Not to mention sometimes abject and total failure.

Forgive the indulgence – Here are some of my favourite places as a teenager; – Carnaby Street was a favourite haunt of mine. Clacton-Upon-Sea, Jaywick Sands, Lowestoft, New Forest. These were locations my friend and I would” head off for”, for the weekend.

Money constraint when dating as a teenager.

We were restricted by finances and living in Luton, and apart from the New Forest, these locations were not so far away. Also, we were influenced by our parents who could never afford to take us much further for holidays. However, we never felt deprived as we loved all of these locations.

For sure you can rekindle memories by revisiting these places and locations where you spent time together.

But the missing ingredients will always be the crucial absence of that very special person. The one whom you were with at that time.

We are specialist tracers of lost friends.

Since 1962 our founder “John” has indulged in lost people tracing.
