    Is there a way to find a person's address? This person has been in hiding for 7 yrs and now needs to be contacted urgently, concerning a death. No time for applying through solicitors, etc.

    Any help please ?

    Call the police - ask for a welfare check. While there ask them to get the person to contact you.

    But if the person has been 'in hiding'. They don't want to be contacted. No court will change that

    How would they do a welfare check if there's no address to go to?

    The cops will find them.. They can access drivers licences etc etc.... But they are unlikely, unless you can convince them that you have genuine concerns for the safety of the person you wanna find.

    You can also search the electoral roll for any person who is registered to vote (unless they are a silent voter, which is rare).
