Find people in Liverpool

Are you looking for a phone number for someone in Liverpool? Use the search box above to get started. The local STD code is 0151 and postcodes begin with L3.

Located in the metropolitan borough of Merseyside, Liverpool is one of the UK's most influential cities. Birthplace of The Beatles, home to the world-famous Liverpool FC and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city has a rightful reputation as a capital of culture.

Although Liverpool's population has fallen since the 1930s, it was still home to a massive 466,400 people at the 2011 census. So, if you are trying to track someone down, it's going to be difficult if you rely on old-fashioned methods, like flipping through the phone book.

White Pages makes it easy for you to find someone online in seconds. To begin your search, simply enter their name and as much address information as possible, into the box at the top of the page.

To give you some extra help, this guide will go into more detail about Liverpool's electoral register, census records and archives.

Liverpool Electoral Register Archives

The Electoral Register is a hugely useful tool if you're trying to find someone. White Pages provides access to over a decade's worth of information from the edited versions of these records. Since 2003, people have had the option to opt out of the edited electoral register. However, their name and address will still appear in the full register.

Therefore, if you can't find the person's details in the edited electoral roll, the full version may provide you with the information you need. You can view full versions of the electoral register, under supervision at specified venues or The British Library.

In Liverpool, you can view current and historic copies of the full electoral register at:

Central Library
William Brown Street
L3 8EW

The library is open 9am to 8pm Monday – Friday, 9am to 5pm on Saturday and 10am to 5pm on Sunday.

Changes in City Boundaries

Liverpool started life as a borough and was granted city status in 1880. In 1901 the cities boundaries expanded to include Kirkdale, Everton, Walton, West Derby, Toxteth and Garston. Therefore, if you're looking for records predating this period, you may need to look at historic copies of electoral registers, held in the areas surrounding Liverpool.
