Finding a Missing Heir

Tracing long lost family members whose whereabouts are unknown and unaware that they are an heir and possible beneficiary to an estate can be time consuming and frustrating.

And after a lot of trawling the internet and endless telephone calls there is nothing to show for it, you may feel that nothing more can be done.

Wrong, you can contact us.

We take instruction from solicitors, insurance companies and private individuals for our comprehensive heir tracing service.

We apply our successful methodical and tenacious approach to all cases we deal with and, combined with our thorough understanding of the available sources both technological and historical available, we can often guarantee successful enquiries or there is no to fee pay.

On your behalf we will locate and make contact next of kin, family members, and carry out any interviews concerning other family members and legal matters that may need completing.
We are members of the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) and have a full understanding concerning the handling and passing of personal information, always remaining compliant with the Data Protection Act (DPA), protecting personal information.

To find an heir our services include:

  • Obtain Birth, Marriage, Death Certificates
  • Search Census records and Electoral registers
  • Interview family members, neighbours and work colleagues
  • Search historical, local and national archives
  • Recover military and employment records
  • Liase with international agencies

As professional detectives we ensure that the information we provide is accurate and timely, we do not simply hand over and address that we have pulled off the voters register. We ensure that the person /s that we are looking for are physically found and can be spoken to.

We offer a prompt and cost efficient heir tracing service and are available 7 days a week. Based in Nottinghamshire we trace people across the UK.


Our private investigators are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

If your matter is of a personal nature please advise us how and when you wish us to contact you.
