Soundex is an indexing system for encoding surnames.
- It provides an anonymised representation of a surname.
- It consists of the initial letter of the surname and three digits.
- No soundex is unique to a single name, and a name cannot be recreated from a soundex code.
Please use the soundex calculator below in order to provide a soundex code on all forms:
- Type the surname in the first box and note the resulting soundex.
- Names entered are not stored or retained in any way.
