Telephone directories seem to be obsolete now. I want to look up the address of someone who lives in East Sussex, any ideas how I can go about it ? I tried but you have to sign up and pay for this facility.

Libraries used to have Kelly’s Directories. I used something similar at my library a few years ago. Understandably you have to show ID.

I use bt phone book in line and have never had to pay. Lots of people aren't there though as rhey don't have a landline. Could you try the electoral roll if you know the area?

I seem to have drawn a blank with the online directory which keeps coming up with the word Error. I will try in the library today. Thanks.

I use - you do have to sign up but there's no charge and you're allowed to make a limited number of searches (5?) each day.
