People Finder

If you’ve lost contact with a friend or family member in the UK and would like to get back in touch, use the White Pages People Finder to track down their contact details.

White Pages has access to the official UK Telephone Directory* and over 200 million records, gathered from the Electoral Roll (2002-2014) to ensure that the information we provide you is the most accurate and up-to-date record for that long-lost friend or loved one.

Why use the People Finder?

There are many reasons why you may want to get back in touch with someone. For instance, you may be planning a wedding and you’d like to have your childhood friend there to share your special day with you. Or perhaps you were in the forces, and have lost contact with a group of friends you’d like to meet up with again; it might even be a school or family reunion you’re planning, and you need to have up-to-date address details to send out the invites. If so, White Pages People Finder can help you find people you have lost contact with and help you re-connect with them again.

How to find someone

It's easy to get going; just type in the name of the person you're looking for and their location, then click search. The minimum information needed for the name field is an initial, and a surname.

Please note; entering a commonly used name such as “John Jones” may retrieve more results than our system is able to display. You can refine your search by entering further information such as a middle name or the person’s full address to help you narrow down the list of results.

What if my search to find family and friends is unsuccessful?

Your first attempt to find the person you’re looking for may not prove as successful as you might have hoped. However, we do recommend you remain positive and persistent, as our data is continuously updated.
