When did you last have contact?

Have you done any research?

ER = Electoral roll.

Go to Search at top of the page and then Electoral rolls under Popular Searches.

Input the name you are looking for and then Search.

Electoral rolls and companies house directors are shown.

Don't forget that for several years now you have been able to opt out of appearing on the open Electoral roll so not everyone will be shown

You can find Pauline's new married name on FreeBMD - marriage in Bradford 1986.

She's listed at the same address as Garry until 2018 - though he's only listed there in 2002.
However, that address was sold at the end of 2017.

She's at a Leeds address after that, to 2022, so probably still there..

Someone whom I assume is the same Garry (same spelling of first name, and same middle initial) is at another Bradford address to 2020.

That address has not been sold since 2002, so chances are he's still there, assuming he's the owner and not just a tenant.

I'm afraid I don't see Garry on 2022 ER, which ErikaH mentions.

It narrows down the search if you also enter his year of birth (1981) and the place (Bradford).
When you find the record, click on the document symbol to the right of the record, to see the full address.
