    I'd try an Internet search for other businesses in the same street and give one of them a call. The Post Office may help, but they may not be allowed to give out that sort of information.

    If they have gone into receivership/bankruptcy the lens still belongs to you, not the company so you'd need to contact the receivers.

    Mark, I don't think it's lost just yet. If I lived closer, I'd drive down and take a look, but I live 100 miles away and that's too far. Perhaps you could pm me some information like the date of postage, tracking number, date of delivery (do you have this?), your details and the lens details and I'll try to see if I can get any help. I can't promise success, but I'll try.
    Steve.

    FWIW, the "Registered Office" of the company (on the UK Government trade registry www.companieshouse.gov.uk ) is:

    OPTICAL INSTRUMENTS (BALHAM) LIMITED
    266-268 WICKHAM ROAD
    SHIRLEY
    CROYDON
    SURREY
    CR0 8BJ

    This is the Company's registered address for all official correspondence (but not necessarily the business address, it could be the company's solicitor or accountant).
    There is no indication on the registry that the company is out-of-business or
    insolvent.
