Here are some basic search tips.

London Grid Help
To search for a frequency you can do this by entering the full frequency i.e 456.450 or by searching a partial frequency 456. searching 456. will bring all the results in from 456.000 to 456.999.
If you want to find new licences only enter 2020 and that will search the database that ofcom licences have been issued in 2020. You can also add by month also by searching 12/2020 which will search December 2020.
Postcode search is my favorite method, google the location you wish to find the postcode for i.e Birmingham City Football Club, omit the last digit and search. If the location is on the ofcom register it will appear in the results. Omitting the last digit is important as the street has two postcodes and the last digit alters, hence omitting the last digit.
Searching by bandwidth, bandwidths in the Business Radio sector are as follows 6250 = nxdn, 12500 normal mhz, 25000 Tetra/Radio Mics.
Searching by name, its becoming rare that the name of the licence holder is that of the premises its held at, the reason for this is the licence is applied for by the radio engineer and not the customer. This is not always the case but its becoming more common.
How can i find trunked/cap+ frequencies ? simply search for the licence number or postcode and all the frequencies held on the licence will appear in the results.
View the result on mapping by pressing the map button, this will open a new window.

Rest Of The UK Help.
This is so easy to use, the placeholder tells you want to enter. You can fill all the fields in if you wish or as little as you want. The more filters you use the more drilled down your search will be.
