On both sites my aunt who died in 1999 is still closed also her daughter who died 2015.

I put through an amendment to F M P  for my mother and one of her siblings they are open on both sites though another sibling who died 2016 is still closed on both.

My mother-in-law is open on both, although still alive. Her sister and older brother both died last year, and one is open, the other closed, same on both sites. All a bit arbitrary, but at nearly 100 years old, it hardly matters for the sake of a year or two.

I have just done a bit of testing with people I know are on the 1939 Register on FindMyPast. 

When Ancestry say they have not made it searchable yet, I think they mean you are not yet able to select someone in your Ancestry tree, click search, and locate them in the 1939 Register (as you can with census records etc.)  However, if you select 1939 Register from the Card Catalogue and input the name/details of the person you are searching for you will find their record.

Edit:  Ignore everything I said ::), it is searchable from selecting someone in your tree
Robbins - Wolverhampton.
Spooner - Monmouthshire & Wolverhampton.
Warner & Loundes - Dudley/Smethwick.
Dod(g)son - Heysham/Liverpool/Wolverhampton

I tested it by putting in my grandfather's name and 1939 in Any Event on the "show more options. "

it's searchable from your tree but doesn't show in hints

That said my nan (who died in 2014) isn't shown - I can accept that she's still closed as it takes a while to open - however her two sisters one who died last year and the younger sister who is still alive (or was last month and noone has told me otherwise) is open - whether they've opened the wrong sister who knows

Any one know if there is a way to search by address?

I found them by searching for their neighbour

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

( did you change your post?)

I wonder if they'll find the missing houses?

Search for Hinstock Road, Birmingham  :P
Davies in Wales :(
