Family tracing

In line with Government recommendations relating to the Covid-19 Virus, Family Tracing Service staff are currently working remotely. This has implications for our service and regrettably we are unable to accept any new enquiries at the present time.   If you have an ongoing case, you may contact your caseworker by e-mail at

We hope to return to the office as soon as possible, but you will understand that we are currently unable to predict when that will be.  In the meantime, please do keep checking here for up-to-date information about our service.  Thank you for your understanding.


Since 1885 the Salvation Army Family Tracing Service has been helping to reconcile family members who have lost contact with each other and facilitating the rebuilding of these relationships.

We know that contact can be lost for many reasons, and that for some people, searching for a relative is an emotional experience. We provide a service that is professional, compassionate and non-judgmental, with support throughout the searching process.
