Hi, I probably can.

First way, contact the National Offender Management Service (NOMS). They are the part of the government that deal with prisons. They will pass your details to the prisoner and ask his permission to tell you where he is. A friend did it for me when I was inside but she said it took a few weeks though, so don't be stressed if you don't hear from him right away. If you know his prison/NOMS number, that will probably help speed things up.
Prisoner Location Service
PO Box 2152
Birmingham
B15 1SD

or Email:

prisoner.location.service@noms.gsi.gov.uk

The following information must be included with the enquiry:
  • Your full name
  • Your date of birth
  • Your full address including postcode
  • Reason for enquiry
  • Full name of the person you want to contact
  • Any other name/s by which they may have been known
  • His/her date of birth
Secondly, this might be quicker if you know what prison he was in before he got moved. Most prisons just have a certain few allocation jails that they ship out to. If you know where he was and you know the length of his sentence, it is pretty likely that anybody else from that area who has been in prison will know which jail he is likely to have been moved to. If it is in the North of England I might be able to help.

Hope this helps.

Thanks LBD, I have made a "sticky" out of the information so that other members will know how to locate an inmate

Wicked, great. I hope people can make use of it. Must be horrible not knowing how to contact someone who is locked up. Cheers.
