A PO Box for two people

I have just set up a Post office Box where I can collect my mail in the local sorting office which cost me £270 for one year

Another person living at the same address as myself intends to set one up also

My question is could both of us share the same PO Box as we have lived at the same address for nearly 20 years ?

    Depends if your mail is addressed to your home address and delivered to the PO Box for collection (in which case no, you can't share the same PO Box - Royal Mail will only do that for the individual who applied for the PO Box in the first place). If on the other hand people are going to address their letters to the PO Box, then yes, fine to use it for several people without any need to apply for another PO Box.
