You shouldn't ask for lookups from a commercial site ;D

From RC Helppages (Guide to posting):
Do not ask for look-ups from commercial sources.
Most commercial sources have strict 'Terms of Use', which forbid publishing their data elsewhere, so asking for such look-ups is also asking people to ignore the 'Terms of Use'.

I'm assuming that Copper1 wasn't around when the 1939 Register was first released in 2015.  It was exactly the same at that time - purchase credits etc. on top of your subscription.

Same thing with the 1911 census, too.

one of these couples is the parents of Dinah Hall 29/12/1738 bap. Syston Parish.

Morning Janet  :)

Do you mean Bitton Parish
Dinah Hall
Baptism 31 Dec 1738
St Mary, Bitton, Gloucestershire
Father John Hall

Sorry, Ignore that, I can see the Syston baptism now though Ancestry have it transcribed wrongly. The parish at the top of the register page is listed as Oldlands? Hanhams Chapel

Hanham and Oldland were both hamlets and chapelries within the parish of Bitton.

Further info at http://www.bittonhistory.org.uk/buildings/chapels/

Hanham became a separate parish in 1848.

Siston is a separate parish, just to the north of Bitton.

The Howe is next to Port St Mary Railway Station .
The road to Cregneash passes through it (Howe Road).

A census is a snapshot of who was where on a particular date.

So, your return isn't out-of-date - it still shows accurately where you were on the date in question.

Essex / Re: Who was Cissie's mysterious husband?

I suspect that the marriage certificate will say something like:
Walter C Ponting, otherwise known as George E Jackson.

Family History Beginners Board / Re: Advice on surname variations please.
« on: Tuesday 15 June 21 14:14 BST (UK)  »
The concept of correct spelling or misspelling is a relatively recent phenomenon. Nowadays, we have a heavily engrained sense of "correct spelling" drilled into us from our own education amongst other things, but in the past there wasn't necessarily such a thing as a misspelled word or name. We're talking about societies predominantly using oral communication where "the masses" couldn't read or write (well).

Seems that in modern society, spelling is becoming less important ;D
(Judging by post on various forums)
