1921 Census
« on: Friday 10 September 21 22:13 BST (UK) »
Should the 1921 Census become available on line, or wherever they make it available to the general public, sometime soon?

Any word on when?

Getting close now! I don't think there will be any surprises for me, but might be some interesting nuggets.

"Owing to the restrictions associated with numerous pandemic lockdowns during 2020 and 2021 that have affected work on digitising the 1921 census records, there is a possibility there may be a small delay to the original release date of January 2022. We are working hard to overcome these challenges and are committed to publishing the historic 1921 census records online as soon as possible in early 2022."
"The price of accessing record images and transcripts will be announced nearer to the date of release."

FindMyPast have now announced that the data will be available from 00:01 6 Jan 2022.

I'm a bit confused by their announcement, it says they have an exclusive on these records and it'll be £2.50 per record transcript or £3.50 per original record image but then further down the FAQs it says that the images will be viewable from the same date at the National Archive. Presumably the National Archive version isn't searchable or something?

Also, does this exclusive mean that Ancestry and MyHeritage will never have access to this data or will we just have to wait a bit longer?

"1921 Census of England and Wales will be free to view online at The National Archives" if you visit there in person - not on their website.
Yes it is likely Ancestry will likely get later, about 3 years later I think was the case for the 1939 register when they did their own transcripts of the images. My Heritage still do not have images of the 1939 register, they only have transcripts and purchased them from Findmypast.

     Re: 1921 Scottish Census. Following information from ScotlandsPeople website. "We will release indexed images of the 1921 Scottish Census on scotlandspeople.gov.uk and in the ScotlandsPeople Centre in the latter half of 2022. We'll keep you updated on progress via our digital channels." Normally this Census would have been released in January 2022. Assume it's later in the year due to Covid. This is the first Census my parents will appear on and I've been looking forward to it's release for a long time. Looks like I'll have to wait a little longer.
     Regards,     Dod.

P.S. 1931 Census. The 1931 Census Returns for England and Wales were destroyed by fire during WW2, but the Scottish Census still exists. I wonder if I'll still be around when that's released!
