Hello I am Kay... I am not very good at computers

As discussed, there are companies online who may help with a people search.

Your sister is not liable for the personal debts of her partner and if he had no money or assets when he died then the debts basically die with him.

As he had no will, he has died intestate, therefore letters of administration would be required of the bank etc. https://www.gov.uk/applying-for-probate.
