Valid point @tommor
The reference given in the Company house doument is ;
The Accounting Centre, 36 Queens Road, Newbury, Berkshire, RG14 7NE
And Op refers to one "Tom Michel" (which could be "Mitchell" or a variant) - so those are places to start.
Whoever has banked the money has acted illegally, as there is no possibility a contract could have been formed with a defunct company. So as long as money was received after May 2017, the OP should be able to recover it as it has been taken under false pretences - ie fraudulently.
That of course will depend on what the OP has signed - but at first sight seems the likely situation.
Police first - Lawyer second if Police refuse to apply the law.
