Need help finding someone from in and around Southend-on-Sea?
We quite often get messages from people who’ve found our site as they’re looking to track down friends, trace former work colleagues, or find relatives from in and around Southend. We also often hear from people looking for help with their Southend-on-Sea Family History research.
To help anyone looking for Southenders, here are a few links to try, and some suggestions:
- BT Directory Enquiries – If they’re still local, try the phone book
- 192.com electoral roll – Try a search on the UK electoral rolls for recent years
- Friends Reunited – One of the best ways to find schoolfriends and colleagues
- Ancestry.co.uk – Mainly aimed at family tree researchers, but useful for old BT phone books, and date/place of birth
