If you’re prepared to pay for each check, you can use services like GB group ID3Global, http://www.gbgplc.com/uk/products/gbg-id3global/. I used to use this when it was called URU and it can confirm addresses and date of births based on other address and DoB sources. Obviously, if the person in question has gone to some effort to lay down a false trail, it won’t help but it defeats casual efforts.
