The service was established in 1885 for the purpose of tracing adult members of family with whom contact has been lost – whether recently or in the distant past.
The Salvation Army operates in well over 100 countries around the world.
Every working day of the year, at least 10 people are successfully traced and reunited with their families in the United Kingdom alone.
Maybe we can help with your search. Enquiries from within the United Kingdom should be sent (stamped addressed return envelope, please) to
