            I don't expect that it'll tell me anything new, my mum won't be on there as she wasn't born then. My grandparents will be though, but I know where they were living.

              Lovely news but a bit expensive. Like you say Caroline, better start saving now. £2.50 is only for the transcription and £3.50 for the original.

                I'm very cynical, I expect that before the Census is integrated into the package FMP will hike their subs up to more than cover the costs.

                  If you watch the video on their page you can start to understand the likely costs that accompanied this project. I can see why they are initially charging that much. However, I'm happy wait for a couple of years more to see what happens with the price..

                    If that is what they need to charge then so be it and as I said, we just need to begin saving up. I would assume that none of us actually expected a free ride though some of the FB posters seemed to expect it.

                      The 1901 census was initially a separate pay per view site but I don’t remember it being that expensive, comparatively speaking. It was the same when TNA passenger lists came online. They called that one ancestorsonboard.com and there were plenty promotional freebie or discounted scratch cards around. I still have an unused one at the back of a drawer somewhere LOL
                      Scotland’s 1921 census now likely won’t appear until well into 2022 but most likely the credits per page will be the same as the earlier censuses.

                        When the 1911 census was first brought online I didn't subscribe because I had a pretty good idea that it would solve no near family mysteries. I waited until it was part of the general subscription and I was right. Of course, since then I made extensive use of it for more distant family. The same will apply to the 1921 census. I know where all my near family were and can wait for the more distant ones.

                        Don't mind paying at all, of course, but I have to draw the line between 'essential' close family work and 'interesting' distant family work. In just the same way I have nearly got all the certificates I need for close family but draw the line at wholesale certificate buying for distant family unless it is essential.

                          Yes, I remember the 1901 and 1911 census being pay to view and spent a fortune looking for my Grandmother on 1901 census until I eventually found her in Rotherham. I was only a beginner at family history then so probably would find her easier now.

                          I appreciate how much it must have cost to produce it. Will invest in the ones that will be helpful to me.

                          Getting excited now. There are a few that will be really helpful.

                            I don't think it will solve and mysteries for me so I am not expecting to download anything, though of course I will use the free search to see if anything of interest comes up.

                              One of my paternal Gt Grandparents might be on it, I’ll need to check what date she died. Daddy won’t be there but his eldest sister (the firstborn) should be as I’m sure she was 1920.

                                I'm looking forward to it.

                                My parents and OH's mother were on the 1911, my parents were born 1903 and 1904, and OH's mother in 1910, his father was born in August 1911 so his parents were married on the census.

                                It will be interesting to see what they were all doing in 1921, as my parents left school at age 12 so out at work. Mum was a dance teacher at an Arthur Murray dance studio at some time in the 1920s ......... she met Dad when she was teaching him how to do the Cha Cha and her long bead necklace got caught on the buttons on his suit vest . I think that was around 1925 or 26 though ......... they married in 1928 after he'd convinced her to go out with him.

                                I know which images I will be buying

                                An article on the MailOnLine last night said it had taken 3 years to do the work, including capturing and killing bugs!

                                I don't begrudge them trying to get some of that cost back ........................ but am wondering if the cost is only for downloading the images so that it might be possible to LOOK at them without paying??????

                                It might take 2 or even 3 years to reach the point where it is included in the subscription.

                                  When you compare it to a price of a BC I suppose it isn't so bad. I will probably get a few initially of the direct line, both sets of grandparents for me, and see how it goes.

                                    I will be looking for grandad after the tale my aunty spun...something to do with the cigarette family (maiden name is Wills) and an aunt bringing him up!

                                    Might be him on the 1911 with a lady called Rosa which just happens to be my aunties middle name and he wasn't a Barnados boy like grandma said either and grandma was very definite about that one!!!

                                      Sadly it won't show my Granda as he was born in August but I'm hoping it might help to show a further record for his Aunt. Otherwise I cannot really do much else as all other Grandparents were born in 1930, 1939 and 1941 and unless there's a miraculous Scottish 1939 it won't really help solve a mystery either sadly

                                        The 1939 Register for Scotland does exist but our laws are a bit different so its closure period is being strictly adhered to. There won’t be a release with redacted lines as in England and Wales.

                                        You can apply to get the entry for an person but it is expensive at £15 per application and it is only for that one individual (who must be deceased) and not the whole household. You are not given date of birth despite the person being deceased.
