The City of Salford is a metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester, which is known for the Lowry Art and Entertainment Centre and waterside shops, restaurants and bars.

With a population of 218,000, Salford is a bustling residential centre – so if you’re looking for someone in the area, you’re going to struggle if you rely on old-fashioned methods.

Luckily, White Pages’ people-finding tools can help you to find someone at the click of a button, and all from the comfort of your own home.

The rest of this guide will further assist you with your search, by providing information on Salford’s electoral records and archives.

Salford Electoral Register Archives

There are two versions of the electoral register: the edited version and the full electoral register. White Pages offers you access to over a decade’s worth of information from the edited version of the register.

However, as people have the option to opt out of this version, the full electoral register can be a useful tool in a people search. You can view the full electoral register under supervision at specified official venues, or at the British library.

You can view a copy of Salford’s full electoral register, under supervision, at:

Salford City Council
Civic Centre
Chorley Road
M27 5FJ

Changes in City Boundaries

The current city boundaries have been in effect since the Local Government Act 1972, and encompass a merger of five former local government districts. Therefore, if you are looking for someone from Salford, from before 1972, their records may not be held at the above address.
