Hello Mary - welcome to the boards - you do realise you have to pay for the 192 service?


Nyx Report 27 Aug 2013 16:30

Mary you have to buy credits to view the full details on 192 , so unless someone is willing to use one they have spare it's unlikey .

If you ask on the Find Living Relatives board someone with access to the electoral rolls on here may be able to help. :-)


jax Report 27 Aug 2013 16:38

If you have Genes Platinum or FMP full... the electoral roll comes with the subscription


Island Report 27 Aug 2013 16:39

FMP has the electoral roll if that's any good


Mary Report 27 Aug 2013 16:52

thanks Anncardiff and Ramblingrose.

Yes, i understand it requires either credits/subscription. the reason why i am not going to to buy it as I just need to use this site for once at the moment.
i would really appreciate if someone can help me. the data I need to find only exists in


jax Report 27 Aug 2013 16:55

Why does it only exist on Is it something more than the address that you are after?


Island Report 27 Aug 2013 17:12

FMP no good then?


AnnCardiff Report 27 Aug 2013 17:35

to be honest, even if I only needed it for the one number, I'd buy credits


jax Report 27 Aug 2013 17:46

I have People tracer then FMP added it to their subs...People Tracer is more informative as it gives the price of the house when last sold ect well since 2002....but not sure what 192 has got that People tracer has'nt


LindainHerriotCountry Report 27 Aug 2013 17:47

Message sent, I have FMP but that may not be what you need


Island Report 27 Aug 2013 19:13

FMP was offered but ignored Linda.

192 is good but very expensive so it is unlikely that anyone will have credits to spare.

However, if you Google the name you are interested in and, if you are lucky it is found, select the 192 option you will see rather more information than you would if you had simply searched the 192 site.

Having established the person you are interested in is probably at the address, then have a look at some of the alternative sites. Some only charge a couple of quid for a days worth of lookups.


AnnCardiff Report 27 Aug 2013 19:32

it used to be less than a tenner for a one off purchase, plus - doesn't every large post office carry the telephone directories for the whole of the UK?


jax Report 27 Aug 2013 19:34

IGP I purchased 500 credits on people tracer which works out at 10p a look up but it there are a lot of people with the same name it is still 10p

What has got that people tracer hasn't?

Edit - You can find phone numbers for free on long as they are not ex directory
