Another question: How do I get rid of the Green Card that keeps popping up? I assume switching off my own pop-ups would be a start but is there a way within the website to do it?

Just having fun trying to connect twiglets of families. :)

Thank you Jebber.  Pot luck then really if someone born less than 100 years ago shows up or not. 

To a certain extent yes.
However, the 1939 register was updated by NHS staff until 1991. If a person died their doctor was supposed to notify the NHS who would make a note on the register. Due to the way doctors were paid by the numbers of patients they had some did not notify the deaths.
Other notifications fell through the system between the local offices and the central register.

Cheers

I've found loads of people under 100 from my family.... though most of them appeared after Findmypast started matching records with the death index.

Fortunately I've found the people I'm most interested in. Some remain elusive though.

I'm a bit late to the party - but I'm just getting into this register and found a particular address with just dotted lines against it. I can't believe a property in central London would be empty - what would be a possible reason for these being empty (at least three properties in the one street) - Daphne Street, Wandsworth.

Yes, I can see the "dotted lines" but they are generally for only one household within the property - i.e. 19a whilst 19 is occupied - and the initial survey was a snapshot of 29 September 1939.

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.

Each household has it's own front door though. They are maisonettes. Do you think no-one was at home?

Possible, but more probable that they were unoccupied on that particular day.
