All of this information has been publically available since the inception of Companies House.
You might of had to go to Companies House, request the records and sit at a microfiche reader but it was all there. Full Name, date of birth, nationality, home address, occupation.
In recent years the ability to use a service address for the public record and hide the residential address has come into force, as has the partial suppression of date of birth.
Limited liability has always come at the price that certain information must be publically available.
People didn't seem to mind this information being public when it took a bit of work for someone to find it. It appears the issue is they just don't like people being able to find it easily.
