Ancestry show incomplete data for all recent (after the 1980s changes) BMD register entries. The database has the data, but the display routine is a field short, so rather than fixing that, they decided not to bother. Apparently they want people to order certs through them at vastly inflated prices.

I have reported this as a fault on several occasions, but their "support" don't understand/care.

There are other databases where they have decided not to provide the proper source reference. Maybe they believe that they ARE the source, rather than just a Repository.
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.

What were the 1980s changes please?

Thank you for drawing my attention to that Dawn  :)  I was not aware that Ancestry had not got the full details though F M P have but I should have remembered there were more numbers than earlier registrations on these records.   ;D

It's not only Ancestry that are a field short, the death index is available without subscription at familysearch.org but again the entry number is missing which is odd as they 'obtain' their data from FindMyPast.
