Salisbury, Wiltshire, is known for its beautiful cathedral which features the tallest spire in the United Kingdom, as well as being home to the best-preserved copy of the Magna Carter.

Picturesque, historic streets and bustling shops, pubs and restaurants have attracted over 40,302 people to this City. However, if you're trying to find a long-lost friend or relative, short of climbing to the top of the cathedral spire with a pair of binoculars, you're going to find it a little difficult. Fortunately, our people tracing tools can help you find a person's contact details in a matter of seconds.

The rest of this guide will provide you with more information on Salisbury's census records and archives, to help you with your search.

Salisbury Electoral Register Archives

With a White Pages subscription, you can gain access to a decade's worth of information from the edited version of the electoral roll. However, people now have the option of having their details omitted from this edited electoral register. The full version then would be the most useful tool to those who are struggling to track a person down.

You can view copies of Salisbury's full electoral register under supervision at certain official venues or at The British Library in London.

In Salisbury, you can view current and historic copies of the full electoral register (provided they date back further than 10 years) at:

Wiltshire Council
