Just select the census year that you want to look at .  It will then bring up the search page for that year with this option at the top.  Just click to the right of the blue blob which alternates between person / address

Thankyou Josie - I was so keen to try out the search I got ahead of myself ( and the capabilities of FindMyPast) and was expecting to search all the census at once!! Silly me - thank you for explaining it.

This is a feature that The Genealogist has had for years, and it's easier to find on their site.  TG's list of results gives more detail including, crucially, the name of each head of household which saves a lot of time.
