Transfer of Woolwich in Barclays ...

With Cam the Man going on about funding the Big Society out of dormant bank accounts, I have now made an effort to try and locate the funds I had in the woolwich building society. It's an account that I haven't touched for 15 years !!
How does one go about tracking down the money? Does anyone else have any experience?

I have tried the Barclays website ... but drawn a blank.
Cheers

And sorry the title should have said "into"

Re: Transfer of Woolwich in Barclays ...

I used to work for Barclays. Their systems should have been merged so that all Woolwich customer details are accessible to Barclays, including dormant accounts.

From recollection, there is a form to complete, detailing as much info as you can about your old account. You usually request this directly from the bank. There is probably also a small fee to pay.

Your best bet is to write to Barclays HQ telling them your situation and they will send you the relevant form. (or if you ever have the opportunity, pop into a local branch)

Alternatively, having just had a look online, there are various companies (eg http://www.mylostaccount.org.uk/ ) that can help trace your account.

Good luck.
