Chester is an exciting city, bursting with architectural and archaeological treasures, and with a thrilling 2000 year history.

Its unique border position and huge harbour made it the perfect outpost for the Roman Empire, and Viking raiders sailed through in their long boats during the Dark Ages. Today, it’s a vibrant city packed with bars, cafes, restaurants, markets, landmarks and tourist attractions.

If you’re struggling to find someone using the traditional methods, White Pages' people finding tools will make the task a lot easier.

The rest of this guide will provide further information on Chester’s census records and archives to further assist you with your search.
