Why People Join Us

People join our personal matchmaking agency for many reasons but, primarily, it’s the need for anonymity, a lack of time and opportunity, sensitivity over entering – or re-entering – the dating scene, as well as the more specialised search that we offer compared with other agencies. It’s important to us that we have happy clients and will therefore do everything we can, to make sure our clients really do, at the very least, have a happy experience.

We are possibly the best matchmakers in the UK today and have a reputation in the industry for integrity and honesty. We will be honest with you. Come and meet us without obligation, then go away and think about it. Safety is first and foremost in our minds for both men and women. The word ‘County’ means nothing more than the fact that we cover the entire UK and beyond.

Matchmaking Essex

We are a traditional personal matchmaking agency covering the area of Essex since the 1980s.

Offering Traditional Dating Agency Services in Essex

Are you currently single in Essex and seriously looking for that ‘forever person’ in your life, have you perhaps already tried online dating or thought about it but been fearful to take that step? Here at The County Register, we understand those fears and concerns, as for getting on for 4 decades now we have been providing high quality, traditional dating agency services across the county of Essex.

The County Register was formed as long ago as 1983 by Heather Heber Percy who still oversees the running of the company on a day to day basis today, bringing face-to-face matchmaking to the people of Essex.

What We Do

Most people understand the differences between using an online dating site and a personal introductions company such as The County Register, as the differences are profound. Joining an online dating site means that you are largely on your own, building your own profile, uploading photographs from your PC or phone and when that’s complete trawling through thousands of often poorly constructed profiles of others and looking at photographs that may well be years or even decades out of date.

At The County Register, we come to you to conduct an in depth interview during which we get to know you very thoroughly, then build you a professional dating profile, take photographs and then personally supervise your matches based on the criteria you have provided to us. It’s a service that is a world away from online dating and one that consequently has led us to literally thousands of successes over the years.

Yes it costs more than ‘DIY dating’ alone on the internet, as it’s a very human service, that is conducted on a traditional face to face basis, but still offers great value for money when you consider the level of personal service to members that is provided over a period of up to 18 months.

Our Matchmaking Services

Our discreet and very personal service through our matchmaking team, ensures that there are no personal details of you or photographs on the internet, they are kept highly confidentially, ensuring that our clients privacy is right at the top of our list of priorities. Every client is personally interviewed, ID checked and carefully vetted to ensure safety and that every member is genuinely single and exactly who they say they are.

It’s a careful, measured service in every instance and you will never find any compulsion to join or sales pressure of any kind.


If you feel that this is the type of service that would be preferable to you and you would like to know more, then please contact us today by completing our contact form on this page or ringing us on 0800 644 4110. We are waiting to hear from you and to talk you through the options available.

Educated Matches

The majority of our client base are university educated, successful within their chosen field and are all searching for someone special to share their lives with. Many are high profile within their specialist field or occupation, so our confidential approach is usually one of their biggest considerations in joining us. Our service is totally discreet and there is no public profile or photographs of you on the internet or elsewhere that people could stumble across accidentally without your knowledge.

Our clients within come from all walks of life and backgrounds: they range in age from 30's to 80' and it is our objective to help them all find love or a compatible partner, or hopefully both. They are usually at least comfortably off and on some occasions wealthy but the most common characteristic is a genuine desire to meet a compatible, long term partner, from a similar background as themselves and with a minimum level of risk. We our champions of dating safely at The County Register.
