Just to clarify - I`m probably being thick - but if I take out a subscription with Findmypast will I have to pay extra to view the 1921 census?
(I used to have a sub but it lapsed a while ago)

Yes you will. If you go to the Find My Past site, it explains that unless you go to the National Archives at Kew where images will be free, everyone else has to pay to view either a transcript or the full entry. They give the two different prices per image - £2.50 for a transcript and £3.50 for the actual image However if you already have a pro sub to FindMyPast, you will get a discount on those prices.
FindMyPast also clarified in their questions that you canít access the 1921 at a library for free either, only at Kew.

I've been an Ancestry.com subscriber for years - tried FindMyPast on a trial once but couldn't get on with it.

Do I understand from what I'm reading that my Ancestry subscription is useless if I want to access the 9121 census?

I've emailed and tweeted Ancestry, but they are not responding.

You won't see the 1921 Census on Ancestry for some time. They will have access eventually when the excusive FindMyPast deal expires, but that may be a few years.

Thanks for the heads-up Antony  :)

Free access to the 1921 Census at two sites in addition to Kew -

Quote
The census will be available online via our commercial partner Findmypast and will be free to access in this way at The National Archives, in Kew.

In addition, visitors to the Manchester Central Library and the National Library of Wales will be able to access the 1921 Census of England and Wales via the Findmypast website for free following its publication next year.

The lack of trailing slash in the URL seems to be causing the TNA website to have a wobbly.
