The 1861 is the census with the most missing bits, according to the National Archives.

I recently emailed them to add another problem area to their list. Frizington in Cumberland has pages which are damaged, and gaps in the numbering.

Guess where my ggg uncle and his family were!

They confirmed that the sheets were lost long ago. :(
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.

Also interested in Leigh& Burrows,(Lancashire) Griffiths (Shropshire & lancs), Leaver (Lancs/Yorks) & Anderson(Cumberland and very elusive)
