With such a bustling community, finding the contact details of a long-lost friend or relative can prove rather difficult. Luckily, White Pages can help.

Manchester Electoral Register Archives

When you use White Pages, you are offered an instant preview to electoral roll records from 2002 - present.

The electoral roll contains the names and addresses of all registered voters in the UK and there are two versions, the full and the edited version. From 2003 onwards, voters could choose to have their details omitted from the edited version of the electoral roll. However, their name and address will still be included in the full electoral roll. This is why the electoral roll has become an important tool for researching the whereabouts of lost friends and relatives.

If you would like to see the current full version of the electoral register in Manchester, you can view it offline at the following locations:

Please note: due to changes in government legislation, only the current version of the full electoral roll is available for public inspection. This means that historical versions, which were produced within the last 10 years, are not available to the public. Older versions of the electoral register, which in Manchester's case date from 1832-1993, are available to view on Microfilm.
