It won't fill in any serious gaps for me as that generation is people I have known. It is trying to push some lines back before BMD registration that I have problems with.

Now 1951 would be intesting as it would reveal where my grandfather went after he abandoned my grandmother and family. Sadly I don't think that the NHS will keep me going for long enough.

I am hoping to find out where a couple of ancestors worked. Engineers on 1911 census, but having several companies operating in their town, who worked where is a mystery at the moment.

I use the free membership of the British library through my local library and I've just been really lucky with one of my late uncles who also was an engineer, but I didn't know where he'd worked.  I've just found his name mentioned in a local 1928 newspaper it appeared in an article about "Rose, Down &Thompson Ltd", a local company's annual dance and uncle was one of the workers who helped organise it.

It may help a little but like  Chilternbirder said I know a lot about  that generation from Dad .  My most solid  brickwalls  are around late 1700's - mid 1800's , if only there were census or free bmd  that far back.
