Checks if a person has moved from the address given in the input record. If so, the service returns true. If not, the service returns false.



  • S - This allows matching to be made at Surname level. This means that the person is assumed to be goneaway if anyone with the same surname at the supplied address is found to be goneaway. This is useful where you have a large number of missing or possibly inaccurate initials or forenames, but is not generally recommended as it can lead to a high number of false positives.
  • I (default) - This forces matching to be made at Initial level. This means that the first initial must match as well as the surname. Where no first initial is passed into the service then no match can be made. This provides a more accurate match but can lead to a lower hit rate compared to surname level matching.
  • F - This forces matching to be made at Forename level. The entire forename as supplied to the service must match the forename on our goneaway data. If no forename or only an initial is passed into the service then no match can be made. This provides the most accurate match but gives a much lower hit rate, as many of the records on our goneaway data only include initials.
