Finding a surname in Chislehurst, Kent

Linda Report 26 Aug 2013 20:00

Does anyone know a way to find out the surname of someone by their christian name and current address please?

The names of voters registered at an address be can looked up in person on the ER These are usually held at the local library or Council Offices.

It looks as you can in-put the street address on, but have to pay to view each entry.

Thanks DetEcTive, I live a long way from the person so it would be quite a journey for me.

If you tracked the ER down (Library or Council Offices) they 'might' look it up for you. There's no harm in asking!

Why not alter the title of this thread to include the town/village? There might be a member who lives locally who would have a look for you.

Just changed the title, thanks for that.

Chiselhurst comes under Bromley - details of the ER are here

(copy and paste both lines)

"It can be checked, under supervision, in the main reception at the Civic Centre."

If they say 'no', someone might be able to on your behalf! :-)
