People Tracing

Cohen and Black provides a people tracing service to locate the current address of an individual. Additional contact information such as telephone number may also be obtained.

Who do we trace?

Cohen and Black undertake tracing of:

  • Old friends.
  • Former work colleagues.
  • People you went to school or university with.
  • Relatives.
  • Close family members.

Why do you want to trace them?

Cohen and Black will always undertake due diligence before we accept your instructions.

  • Why do you want to trace the person?
  • What do you intend to do with the information?
  • What is your relationship to the person you wish traced?

Where can you trace?

The Cohen and Black tracing service is not restricted to the Yorkshire area. We are able to trace people throughout the UK.

Frequently Asked Questions?

I have very little recent information about the person. Can you still help?

Yes. It can sometimes be possible to trace a person with very little recent information.

The person may be deceased. Can you still help?

Yes. If it is found that the person is deceased a copy death certificate can be provided.

Will the person know I am searching for them?

No. Our enquiries will not alert the person to the fact that a trace is being undertaken.

Can you contact the person on my behalf?

Yes. If for any reason you want a third party to make the initial contact for you we are able to do this for you, or advise you of other options.

How long does it take to trace someone?

Most traces are completed within 5 to 10 working days. It can take longer for example if the person has moved many times since the last known address, or has changed their name, or there are few firm details to start with.

Are you always successful?

No. Sometimes the trail goes cold and we are unable to find their current address.

I have another question

Please get in touch. We will answer any questions you may have about the tracing service, and discuss the likelihood of success.
