Ancestry say "The 1939 Register has been added to the site but has yet to go fully live, please keep an eye on the website tomorrow for more information about this fantastic collection"
"While the 1939 Register has been added to the Ancestry website, we haven't made it searchable just yet, please keep a close eye on the site tomorrow for more information about this."

Although they say that, a lot of people on other forums are finding people, so it might be worth trying it today just in case the site crashes tomorrow with everyone trying to use it!

Interesting, I’ve just searched for my grandfather, who I know is there on FindMyPast. He is there but everyone else in the house is closed, even though they are open on the image on FindMyPast.

Could it be that Ancestry have the original and so won’t have all the amendments that FindMyPast have done over the last year or so? I thought it was said that Ancestry wouldn’t have the images, but they do.
