Try the Electoral Roll online also.

I think you can get access free of charge but can't remember how. Call local council and I'm sure they'll help

I would say is cheaper but if you want to you can just go to the town hall in the town he lives in and check the physical copy of the roll there at the reception desk.

He/she might not have put him/herself on it tough.

He lives about 300miles away, so not possible to go Town Hall.

electoral register is organised by address not name, so unless you are planning to go through every entry or have an idea what area/street he lives in it will take a long time. Last people I know who did it took 3 days. And also not everyone is on there. You can usually buy edited copies but they won't have everyone on there because there is a box on form you can tick not to be. Ones at council offices will be the full register though.

Best way is to try things like bt online phonebook (best one I've found for finding people), even something like facebook or twitter - people often put quite a bit of info on there.
