Name Data

Need to know who is behind the letterbox?

AFD’s name dataset provides access to both residential and business name data with address and phone numbers.

Almost all 2.2 million UK organisation data records are complete with telephone numbers, the actual or imputed employee size, turnover banding, and user-friendly business classification and Standard Industry Classification (SIC) code.

The 37.6 million UK residential name and address records include length of residency and geodemographic classification. Over 11.9 million of the records have a telephone number.

Name data from AFD is just better than any product we have previously used. The interface has a unique ‘Fast Find’ system where our users type in the search information into a single field, and it works out and returns what you’re looking for. Our searches are simply faster to make and more likely to be successful.
