We have been ex-directory for years, also opted out from the edited version for many years and yet all of my family appears on 192.com

There is an online form for data removal here https://www.192.com/c01/new-request/

& yet we do not appear on FindMyPast

I do - 2002 showing my full address and naming the other half as well.

And the 192 information is on FindMyPast as well, all aligned with the Companies House information. So even though I've opted out of the Electoral Roll, I still show up at my address with my husband's companies!

How they can get away with so much information available since GDPR I'm not sure!
There is a clear public interest in having the details of company directors available - though I can't give chapter and verse, that will be a clear exemption from GDPR restrictions.

Same here but it's quite funny as it lists our nearest neighbour as living at the same address. He lived  1/2 mile away. As we were in the middle of moving, we also appear at the other end of the UK as well

We opted out later.

I can't fathom how 192 get some of their info?

I opted out from the Electoral Register quite a few yrs ago.

I've just done a search of myself which shows 2004-08

There's a friend of my daughter who has never been a lodger or anything else in my household (a visitor a couple of times) although a lodger at a different address (my daughter's house) i.e. I don't know how this fits in for my address as my daughter had her own house prior to 2004 & the friend moved in later  :-\  ::)

I searched for myself just out of curiosity and discovered (from 2002 before opting out of public register) that I seem to be a few years younger than I always thought I was  ;D

I often wonder how they worked those ages out as there is no place on the electoral register form for your date of birth/age unless you are coming up to voting age or over 70.

  I worked in a public library most of my life and there were always electoral roll queries, but you used to need the address or be prepared to wade through the whole roll. With computerisation it all became much easier, and some of us felt it was too easy. We visited the new council call centre and were shown just how easy - I gave her my very common name and the village where I lived. In seconds she had not only my address, but my phone number. I went straight home and went ex-directory, and as soon as it was possible opted out of the public voters list.

How far back does it go?

How can I see pre-2000 data?

Some electoral registers go back to the early 19th Century and before. For eg, there are online registers for Plymouth from 1780 (very restricted electoral group, I would think!)

These can be seen on Ancestry and  FindMyPast and by visiting  local archives
