Apart from my first reaction, do they still exist? The last time I saw a
chimney sweep was sometime before the moon landing.

The other and more important to OSM is, do they have a physical
presence? It is the type of trade that works from a van and is contacted
by phone/maybe email, much like a window cleaner.
As they are self-employed the registered office may be their home, but
that is not necessarily in the area they work and it is not somewhere
that will have a physical verifiable sign or be somewhere you would
