Need the name of dna testing companies in London/U.K.

Is anyone aware of DNA testing companies in the U.K. That might have a larger database of U.K citizens?

Well, both Oxford Ancestors and Britain's DNA have closed, so that leaves Living DNA as far as I know. Perhaps other posters know of more companies that have a larger UK database.

Roberta Estes reviewed Living DNA's services just over a year ago, in her blog post "LivingDNA Product Review," in which she said
"LivingDNA is the only company, to date, that offers ethnicity breakdown by regions within the British Isles, based on the POBI (People of the British Isles) project results funded by the Wellcome Trust."
At that time, Living DNA did not offer DNA matching, and I don't know if that or other things (such as their download terms) have changed since Roberta wrote her review. If you think you might want to test there, do some checking around to find out more about the company, its privacy policy, terms of service, what they currently offer, and how customers rate it.

Living DNA still do not offer DNA matching, although it does appear to be in beta testing stage.
