Grimmauld Place

Since reading Deathly Hallows, something's been bugging me about Yaxley's discovery of 12 Grimmauld Place. On page 271 of the American hardcover, about a quarter of the way down the page, a paragraph includes the line "...even now, [Yaxley] could be bringing other Death Eaters in there by Apparition." But if only the Secret-Keeper can reveal its location, and none of the current Secret-Keepers have died (sans Mad-Eye; but that's a different story), Yaxley himself isn't a Secret-Keeper, so how can he reveal Grimmauld Place to other Death Eaters? - Cubs Fan2007 03:03, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

I always assumed that, since Yaxley was now aware of the location of Grimmauld Place, the spell that kept it secret was broken, thus allowing him to bring in other Death Eaters. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 11:13, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, I can understand that. But I guess what confuses me is that, I think, it's kind of similar to Snape in Half-Blood Prince. While he is aware of Grimmauld Place's location, he tells Bellatrix and Narcissa that since he is not the house's Secret Keeper, he can't tell them were it is. Cubs Fan2007 05:04, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
But remember, the death of the Secret-keeper, Dumbledore, weakened the spell and made all those who he told the secret to Secret-keepers as well. That was the main reason they abandoned it as Headquarters. In effect, Harry (a known secret-keeper) brought him to Grimmauld Place and revealed the location to him, albeit inadvertantly. Yaxley could then be technically considered a secret-keeper as well. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 08:22, 26 November 2007 (UTC)


Was he cut from the film? I don't recall seeing him, unless he was one of the masked Death Eaters. Jayden Matthews 20:54, 23 July 2009 (UTC)


It should be pointed out that Yaxley is a town in Cambridgeshire, where Warwick Davis lives.

Full Name

What is Yaxley's full name: first and last? 02:55, May 2, 2010 (UTC)

Does anyone know how to pronunce Yaxley's name? Is it axe or az? Jayden Matthews 18:10, July 4, 2010 (UTC)

I've always pronounced it Yacksley as in (axe). --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 18:15, July 4, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, me too. It'd be helpfull to know for sure, as x's are often pronunced as z's. Especially in names. Does anyone have the audiobook? Jayden Matthews 18:24, July 4, 2010 (UTC)
Rowling pronounces it as "Yacksley". See this video. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 18:32, July 4, 2010 (UTC)
Mystery solved! Thanks Seth:) Jayden Matthews 18:41, July 4, 2010 (UTC)
This is pretty irrelevent, but you people were posting on the 5th anniversary of the Harry Potter wiki (you probably knew that). Anyway, now the 7th film's out. Randomno 18:45, July 29, 2011 (UTC)

He is not cut from HBP film

In the article appears one image of yaxley from the videogame.

In the film appears several times the same character with the same mask. In addition, there is no source to confirm that yaxley is removed from the film, we said this simply because we have not been able to identify it - until now.Pol 871 20:37, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

12 Grimmauld Place

When he grabbed Hermione Granger when she used Disapparition he saw 12 Grimmauld Place, but he could not speak about it because Hermione was still secret-keeper and never died. Why could she not use the Memory Charm on Yaxley and kick him out from Grimmauld?? --Danniesen September 5 2010 12:11

Because Memory Charms can be broken by a powerful witch/wizard. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Yaxley during the Battle of Hogwarts?


—The preceding unsigned comment was added by YaxleySnape (talkcontribs).

That's funny, I had come here to post the exact same picture. Yes, I think that's Yaxley. At first I was unsure, because his ponytail seemed a bit disarray, but then I thought that'd be expected, having just fought a battle at all. AlastorMoody 04:49, May 14, 2012 (UTC)

Was Yaxley an Auror?

Was Yaxley ever an auror? I know he was the head of the DMLE during Voldemort's reign over the Ministry, but I can't find any reference to him as an actual auror. 01:17, December 18, 2012 (UTC)Contramancer.

As far as I'm aware, no. Does our article currently imply that, or is this just for personal confirmation? -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 01:27, December 18, 2012 (UTC)
The only mention of "auror" on the page is in the navigation box at the bottom, and he isn't underneath that heading. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:57, December 18, 2012 (UTC)
Personal Confirmation, actually. I was looking at the Heads of Department and he stood up as the odd one out from what I could see.--Contramancer58.106.145.38 04:36, December 18, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, they gave him the title when the Death Eaters took over the Ministry of Magic. I rather doubt that any Death Eater would purposely accept the title "Auror," as the job of Auror is dark-wizard catcher. ProfessorTofty (talk) 05:02, December 18, 2012 (UTC)

Date of birth?

How does him being a Death Eater indicate anything about him being of age? Unlike the Order of the Phoenix, underage wizards were allowed to become Death Eaters. Draco, and I think Regulus as well, are canon examples.--Rodolphus (talk) 19:58, July 13, 2017 (UTC)

I agree - the logic doesn't hold up. We can probably can say little more than he was born before the First Wizarding War i.e. 1970s. --Ironyak1 (talk) 20:08, July 13, 2017 (UTC)

We should change it then.--Rodolphus (talk) 20:14, July 13, 2017 (UTC)

Kidnapping Ollivander?

Is it me, or is the masked Death Eater that accompanies Grayback in the kidnapping of Ollivander in the movie the same who appear during the murder of Dumbledore and is deduced as being Yaxley? Ninclow (talk) 20:21, July 31, 2017 (UTC)
