"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 4 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.
Looks like it might be time to downgrade my Ancestry subscription and spend the money with FindMyPast...

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!

Doubt I will be by the next Northern Ireland Census. No census was taken 1921. One was taken 1926 in the North but destroyed WW2 (the Republic's survives). After the all Ireland 1911 the next one surviving for Northern Ireland is the 28 February 1937!

Yes, I heard that, Maiden...they are apparently very close to putting the digitised version into National Archives at Kew so I presume it should be on Ancestry shortly after that.  Of course, the Scottish one won't come very soon, they still haven't posted the 1911 census yet.  It was interesting to hear the process of the scanning, they can do a whole section (?schedule) (around 300 censuses) in about 40-45 minutes, rather like feeding paper into a copier.  Some will have been lost owing to deterioration but apparently one a very small minority as their conservators have been working on them for around 3 years and have 'saved' loads, I understand.

TNA Kew should have it on the same day it is released by FindMyPast,  I expect it will be a some time before Ancestry get it as FindMyPast need to recover some of their costs.  :)

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!

With paper document as well as subscription I think findmypast have radically overpriced it. I'm interested to find out more details about my grandparents and one set of great grandparents but I'm certainly not paying those prices.

Wasn't the price similar for the 1939 register?
