thanks.  It's annoying that the 1861 Ely Census is missing as this one would hold a lot of answers to questions and guestimates.

Apparently the 1861 Ely pages were destroyed in a flood.

I know just what you mean-I found two children in Newington on the 1851 but sadly the first page containing their parents is missing  :(

Yep the only rural missing pages in Sussex covers one of my families!  Typical!

Didn't know about the Lincs ones, that could explain some problems there too! :)

I have 7 pages missing from the 1861 census in Whitehaven, Cumberland - not mentioned on that list.  It could just be me, but the pages definitely jump from 6-14.  The relatives I am looking for, after spending days looking for them, are on the pages missing.

 Typical >:(

How are you trying to access the Whitehaven pages? If its through rhe likes of Ancestry then it could be a scanning or linking problem with them.

It is through Ancestry, you're right.  I was going to post on the Cumberland forum, in case somebody has a disc.

Thanks Andy, and welcome :D

Hi Subaru

Thanks for the welcome.  I've come across a similar problem before with Ancestry and a missing page, fortunately it didn't affect me. I'm sure somebody on the Cumberland Forum will be able to help. I too have ancestors from Whitehaven so its handy to know of any potential problem. Findmypast.com also have the 1861 census so if I can't find people on Ancestry then I may try findmypast (not that I have used it before)
