UK Alias Addresses

The Alias address format is identical to the Postcode Address File format.

Alias address results are labeled with pafa.

Alias addresses are alternate representations of a UK address found on the main Address File. Typically these are:

  • House name additions on numbered properties (e.g. Rose Cottage at 2 High Street)
  • Business name additions for companies operating from home (Jones Plumbing at 2 The Avenue)

Aliases addresses are extracted from Royal Mail's Alias file to supplment the Postcode Address File. They are not required for delivery purposes.
