I'm curious to see if there are additional types of information on the 1921, since they seem to have developed it somewhat each time.

...I've just checked.  Here's the additional information, as far as I can tell (from www.1921census.org.uk):

- age in years and months
- whether parents living
- number and ages of living children under 16 (including stepchildren)
- employer and place of work
- (Wales, Scotland) whether speaker of Welsh/Gaelic

Thank you for posting that. The - whether parents living could be potentially helpful to me for one family. Fingers crossed.
James Stott c1775-1850. James was born in Yorkshire but where? He was a stonemason and married Elizabeth Archer (nee Nicholson) in 1794 at Ripon. They lived thereafter in Masham. If anyone has any suggestions or leads as to his birthplace I would be interested to know. I have searched for it for years without success. Thank you.

Will also include whether those on the Isle of Man spoke Manx ;D

Hi there Do we know if 1921 census will cover Southern Ireland?
I recently found out my grandmother had been married before marrying my grandfather.
The year 1921 would be great to known her exact address rather than a area.

Southern Ireland, no.

"No census was taken in 1921, because of the War of Independence. The first census of the population of the Irish Free State was taken in 1926. "

I just hope if it is pay per view that the indexing is accurate. And that we are given more options to search other than just name.  I have wasted so many credits in the past looking at wrong-uns  :(
