Looking for an adopted person? We specialise in finding  adopted adults.

People Finder Direct can assist you if you wish to find adopted relatives.  We are able to provide a missing adopted family search service which successfully finds birth relatives – siblings, children or other relatives

Looking for adopted family members is time consuming and stressful, however some searches often only take a few days but others can take longer because of name changes, re-marriages and the relocation to another country outside the UK.

Unfortunately on some occasions the long lost family members may have past away and if this is the case we will look to confirm as much details to you as possible about the family member, including their final resting place and any other relatives that we may have found in our search.

As soon as we have found your adopted family members we will provide a full report stating their current name and address. We will not at any time make your adopted relatives aware of our search, the choice as to whether you make contact is upto you.

Adopted family search requirements

A search usually commences with the provision of the adopted relatives full name which can be found on their original birth certificate or other adoption papers.

If you have not yet received access to their birth records (their original birth certificate) you may obtain this information by contacting The General Register Office on 0300 123 1837 or by visiting The General Register Office website.
