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 Shropshire

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

Offering Traditional Dating Agency Services in Shropshire

Over 30 years ago Heather Heber Percy, living in Shropshire at the time, realised just how difficult it was to find a long-term partner in a safe and discreet way. So, in 1983 she established The County Register – a traditional introduction agency specializing in one to one matchmaking. The company was so successful at helping people find love, and she identified such a need, that nearly four decades later the company is now one of the leading traditional matchmaking agencies. With the headquarters having moved to London, and with her traditional methods having changed very little, the agency now covers all the UK, but its heart is very much still in Shropshire.

What We Do

The County Register originally started with introducing fellow farmers, landowners, and the County Set. Over the years the memberships have expanded to incorporate attractive and successful singles from a multitude of professions living in both the town and country. To both young and old, they provide an exclusive confidential and personal service to those genuinely unattached, who are serious about looking for a new and honest relationship. Heather continues to be the Director of The County Register and with her wealth of experience and knowledge in the dating world has been appointed the current chairman of the DAA.

Part of the uniqueness and exclusivity of The County Register is that every single member is interviewed in person by a senior member of the team. This creates a membership, with knowledge about our clients that cannot be gleaned from a bit of paper or over the telephone, resulting in the most compatible introductions and the safest possible form of dating.

Our Matchmaking Services

Our memberships fall into three levels and to discuss the best possible option for you we always suggest meeting in person. We know there is a financial investment in joining our service and that you can have reservations about meeting new people in this sort of proactive way. We want to be able to advise, counsel and listen to your apprehensions and ensure that this is the right agency for you to give you the best possible membership. We take this part of our business very seriously and to that end we offer a face to face free initial consultation before we proceed. If after this you choose to join us, we would arrange your face to face interview, in your own home if convenient, to complete our comprehensive dating questionnaire. This, together with the photos we will take during out meeting, will form the basis of your professionally written personal profile. You will be ID checked and vetted in a process that all our members go through before being passed to your matchmaker. This is where the personalised individual searches start and your dating journey to find that special somebody.


If you would like to find out more, please call us on 0800 644 4110 or complete the contact form on the website. We are a passionate team of Principals, Matchmakers and Membership Advisers who would all like to tell you more about our services and then if appropriate arrange for your free face to face no obligation consultation. We can never guarantee we are going to introduce you to somebody where there will be that elusive spark, but we do have a successful track record, and we are a passionate team who will do all that we can to make this possible.

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.
