    Basically I need to find an address, I know the post code and where it is. Have something to send up, but can't remember the house number. Tried 192.com but they want to charge me.

    Any other way?

    You could use the post code to see where it is physically, and then use that information to ID the house from the Land Registry.

    I have google mapped it and know the house, but don't know the number!

    Frustrating a bit.

    Google street level available? Guessing you've already tried this...

    edit - or 192.com if you can blag a free trial just for one lookup?

    sounds like it's down to some old fashioned stalking?

    or ask the person you're trying to "send" something to for their address?

    Can't seem to find one! Will keep trying though. No street in the area.

    Haha, if only it was that simple.

    clearly avoiding the stalking issue, I think we've found our answer ;)

    other than that, isn't it possible to check cencus' from past years to see who lived at certain addresses, if you know the person and know they've been there for a few years you might find something there?

    No only the cenus data upto 1911 is available due to some ridiculous law. The electoral roll will have a persons name and address on but you have to pay to access it.

    Would this work, as not wanting it to get lost.

    If it's that important why not just pay to use the electoral roll? :confused: I can't honestly see the postman memorising everyones name in the area they deliver to.

    I thought anyone could see the electoral roll for free at a library or council office?
