Your comment might be removed as we're not supposed to do look-ups from commercial sites as they break the t's & c's of those commercial sites  ;)

I know Steve but you may be inundated with look-up offers by the generously minded chatters here and that would give the copyright team a nightmare of a headache.

My local library has the 1939 register and I have been looking this morning, I have been reading these posts and wonder if the library only has access to the transcript? Didn't seem to be an option (that I could see) for an image of the household :)

Our FH centre has what I presume to be the library edition, and we can view the full page image.

Do you not see this LadyJayne?

No, just a arrow to a transcript.
 
I'll go back next week and take another look, In my excitement I was in a rush trying to look at as many family members as I could, in the hour allowed at the  library.

I'm not sure exactly but sometimes the screen asks you to login in or continue as a guest? if you continue as a guest you should see the images.

If you don't see the images, have a word with the library staff as the version they have access to might need upgrading.From memory this happened at the British Library one week and was fixed by the next.

I'm just waiting for a nice big discount offer on a UK Annual sub in the new year - just so I can get 1939 register. Most other FindMyPast records will just be a (pleasant) bonus.

Fingers crossed. :)
