Please note, the spirit of the research is to find interesting former residents of an address and is not intended to be a house history service
We use available online census information, and make every reasonable effort to locate your address but it cannot be guaranteed eg because house numbers or street names have changed, or the address was unoccupied or hadn't yet been built. In which case you'll be advised and refunded in full
* In the unlikely event that NO information is available for your address, we'll offer a full refund.
** we will always search as many censuses as possible and select the most interesting former resident to illustrate a lost or evocative occupation of its time.
*** 1939 residents born less than 100 years ago today, ie everyone born 1917 or later, will have their information redacted, obscured as a form of data protection
**** Due to the bespoke, address-specific nature of these products we're unable to accept returns. Your statutory rights are unaffected.
