Find My Past problem
« on: Wednesday 07 April 21 13:17 BST (UK) »
I have been trying to access information on the UK Electoral Registers on FindMyPast for a couple of days now & a message comes up " Sorry we couldn't find the page you were looking for". Is anyone else having the same problem? >:(

I have just tried it and had no problems.  It is showing someone I know on there from 2002 to 2020.

Thanks for that Rosie, I have just tried again with the same problem coming up, how odd.

Who were you trying to find and when? 

Find My Past have:-

England & Wales, Electoral Registers 1920-1932 - You can enter a name in this one

UK Electoral Registers & Companies House Directors - It doesn't say what years are covered but I'm guessing more recent than the above.  Also one you can enter a name.

England & Wales, Electoral Registers 1832-1932 - You can enter a name in this one

England & Wales, Electoral Registers 1832-1932 Image Browse  - For this one you have to enter a year and constituency.

Be aware however that the records may not cover the whole of England & Wales.  Possibly a reason as to why you are not getting the result that you are looking for?

Thanks for your suggestions Girl Guide but everything is working Ok this morning. I had tried several names, areas & dates, but the same message kept coming up telling me the page couldn't be found. I guess it was just one of those annoying things that happen now & again.
