I would also stop the destruction of the Irish 1851 census, then I can find my army ancestor on it.

And make anyone who owned any property whatsoever to be required to leave a will, thus helping us researchers out.

I would request a law to be passed that anyone leaving Ireland at the time of the potato famine to come to England or to go to America, should fill out a form giving their names, ages, occupation and accurate place of birth, not just "Ireland" and their destination...some of mine are impossible to track down  ::)

When the manufacturers come out of lock-down and get the workforce safely back into production  ;) ;D ;D

Of course! That's all that's stopping us, isn't it?

I did mention how civil reg should have started in 1800, but if it was to be kept at 1837 I would have it enacted that death certs for England and Wales gave birthplace and parents names, so as to help any future family inheritance disputes even for ones who died intestate. That case I could get the birthplace and parents names of James Smith who died in 1849 in Oxford, and was not born in county in 1841. Ditto for Sarah Bradford who died just weeks prior to the 1851 census. She should have soldiered on through the night of 30th March 1851, be comfy in her Marylebone workhouse bed and answer the enumeration schedule, and then died peacefully on the early morning on 31st March 1851 at least.  ;D

The above exact birthplaces and parents name would also help the many English and Welsh people of Irish ancestry.

Marriage certs to also give mothers name and maiden surname.

If I could have a time machine, I`d like to stop at 1901 census and ask my gt grandfather where he is and why did he desert his family.

They have done in Scotland since they began in 1855.

Good idea of them to have done so, helps Scots with their ancestors, or those with Scots blood. My Scottish ancestor moved to England circa 1760, so long before civil reg. Luckily he lived a long age and remarried later in life, enough to see the Barrington registers (as mentioned before) for Co Durham, for his children, saying "son of John Stewart, a native of Selkirk, Scotland".
