If it is Electoral registers, there is an option to remain private and not be on the public register.

I guess 192 is created from the electoral register. You can opt out of the ‘open’ version of the register made available to commercial sites. Maybe he / she opted out sometime after 2005.

There are now 2 versions of the electoral register in Britain. One is available to commercial bodies like 192, the other isn't. People registering to vote can choose to opt out of the former version so that their names and addresses will not be sold. Before 2005 they didn't have a choice.
I might not be on 192 after 2005 as I have ticked the opt out box on the voter registration form each year.
Edit. We have a consensus.  :)

...if you sign up to the site fully what can you see for people pre-2005?

How far back does it go?

My understanding of 192 is that it is made up from the telephone numbers and not electoral registers.

If you choose to go ex directory then your number will not be available. You can do this at anytime.

Until November 2001 local authorities were free to sell the Electoral Roll to commercial companies. This changed following a legal challenge by an individual who objected to his data on the Electoral Roll being used for direct marketing purposes. Legislation was enacted that resulted in two Electoral Rolls - the full version and the edited version.
The full Electoral Roll can be used only for electoral and credit reference purposes. The edited version is available to any company for any purpose but excludes those people who opt-out of having their information sold to third parties.
The legislation only applies to Electoral Rolls published after 16/11/01.
The 2002 Electoral Roll data held on 192.com, is based on the 2001 electoral register and is the last full roll available before that date and is not covered by the new legislation.
