Searching records

  • Enter as much or as little into each box as required. There is no need for wildcards as the system will do the matching for you.
  • Case is not important - there is no need to use capitals.
  • Entries in different fields can be combined to narrow search. 
  • In text fields, text will be matched anywhere in the field. For example, if you type "out" in Site Address, the search will return records containing South, Dartmouth, Southdown, Plymouth, Monmouth, outside etc.
