Did not realise it was that much:

'Non-Findmypast.co.uk subscribers should use The National Archives Freedom of Information (FOI) request form to request a search of closed records from the 1939 Register. If the record can be opened, we will send you a full transcription of the information held in the record. The opened record will be available to view on Findmypast.co.uk ten working days after the notification of a successful request. Please note there is a fixed charge of 24.35 for this service.'

I think that scotlandspeople charges a similar amount for anyone on their 1939 register, and you only get to see the person you specify, not the surrounding household, so perhaps it is not too bad if you were desperate, but another few months now should not matter.

Added: 15 for scotlandspeople per entry.

I got both my mum and dad's 1939 records opened,didn't cost me a penny.

I just had to email Find My Past a copy of their death certs.

    Have often wondered how the unblocking worked, so very interesting.    I have only just learned this morning that one of our friends in our street during the War years, died back in September 1998 - from his younger brother.  The family migrated to Melbourne in 1949 so that will be why he is still blocked.

    On the other hand, I was in touch up until December 2010, with another friend of that era who lived next door but one from Peter who died in 1998, and his name appears in the 1939 registration.  So I guess that means that Alan has gone too!   Alan did tell me that he was still living in the same house after all of those years.

The records of people under 100 are also routinely opened if FindMyPast can find deaths. Both my father, who was born 1923 and died 1999, and my mother, who was born 1920 and died 2008, have been visible on there for some years and I haven't informed them. I think they must check death registers. Obviously it is harder with a woman as there may have been several name changes. Also if people have emigrated and then died, they are probably still closed.

I found my mother's cousin on 1939 register and where they'd crossed out maiden name and put married name .....and she is still alive !
I wondered if it was to do with her having left country or just a mistake .

  Why would they have not named a single resident at an address in the 1939 register?
