I had a look using your hints and nothing turned up, not even the register.  I then changed from the Australian site to the English site and there they were.  I have noticed this a couple of times, even though I have access to the English records through my subscription there are some that I cannot access unless I am on .co.uk site.
James -Victoria, Australia originally from Keynsham, Somerset.
Heale/Hale - Keynsham, Somerset
Vincent - Illogan/Redruth, Cornwall.  Moved to Sculcoates, Yorkshire; Grass Valley, California; Timaru, New Zealand and Victoria, Australia.
Williams somewhere in Wales - he kept moving
Ellis - Anglesey

Very surprised I could add view and attach records to my tree - without a subscription

They are both showing up on FindMyPast when you search by name. I looked for Isabella.

( did you change your post?)

Yes I did - I found them by looking up the family from 2 doors down - they'd been transcribed on ancestry as Leingson

I didn't want anyone to waste their time helping me - I didn't think that someone would have looked before I had the bright idea of the neighbours - thank you very much though

Free access on something as exciting as that for people who havenít got FindMyPast - wait for Ancestry to crash this weekend.  ;D

Edit:  Ignore everything I said ::), it is searchable from selecting someone in your tree

By searching "normally" I can find my grandfather in '39, but don't finding him through searching from tree. He has a unique name.
Berks / Oxon: Eltham, Annetts, Wiltshire (surname not county), Hawkins, Pembroke, Partridge
Dorset / Hants: Derham, Stride, Purkiss, Scott, Sibley
Yorkshire: Pottage, Carr, Blackburn, Depledge

Jersey: Fowler, Huelin, Scott
Essex/Herts: Livermore, Holgate, Law, Day, Myson, Boyton
Norfolk/Suffolk: Stone, Alexander, Tipple, Ingate

Hello everyone
I  have just had a look at the 1939 Register on Ancestry (using their free weekend) and tried it out - the cover sheet only gave the husband's details and didn't even mention the wife - not even as closed, although on the original she is clearly listed.
I compared it with findmypast, and they both are shown on the cover sheet.
NB Husband died in 1964, wife in 2000.

Is the transcription the same as FindMyPast, or have Ancestry made a new transcription?
