I asked Taylor Investigations to find my long lost love from 40 years ago. With no full name and very limited information I wasn’t expecting any results. Well, I was wrong. Taylor Investigations found her and her family. She had unfortunately passed away but having that closure is all I ever wanted. I am in contact with her family and it has resulted in a wonderful friendship. Thank you doesn’t seem enough but Thank you Taylor Investigations.

James, France

I required some information for a new employee as something didn’t quite match up. Taylor Investigations were thorough, efficient and professional obtaining all the information I required to make an informative decision. I will certainly use again for future employment decisions.

Sarah, Leeds

We cannot recommend Charlotte and her services enough, she is fast, discreet and always very professional. She stopped at no length to get to the bottom of our investigation finding exactly what we wanted and even kept in touch after completing the investigation to see how things were. Excellent value for money. Thanks again, Alastair and Louise

I contacted Charlotte at Taylor Investigations to provide asset and residential protection whilst visiting the UK. The service provided was of a very high standard and will certainly use again. Charlotte and the team were professional and thorough ensuring our safety at all times. Thank you again.

I was put in contact with Charlotte at Taylor Investigations as I was trying to find my mum who I had lost contact with in 2008. Charlotte was professional throughout and worked hard with all the information I had on my mums last known whereabouts. Charlotte was amazing, within hours of our first contact she had information that led onto a successful reuniting. I now have a mum again and my children have their grandma back in our lives after 9 years apart. I cannot thank you enough for bringing my family together again and I would highly recommend to anyone looking to find their family, friends and loved ones.

Richard, Norfolk

I suspected my wife was committing infidelity. Taylor Investigations were the obvious choice for me and they were exceptional at helping me through this traumatic experience. They were so supportive throughout the case and even continued their support and assistance throughout the divorce process. A horrible situation was helped slightly by my investigator and team from Taylor Investigations. Thank you once again for everything.
