Well I can find most of the ones I want except my gt grandfather Richard Bond Cocks.

Have you considered the one in this household? The ages of Richard and Mary are off slightly but I wonder if they were trying to close the gap (the marriage record has a 14 year difference).

Altrincham, Bucklow, Cheshire

Ebenezer Warburton; born c1890, Cadishead, Lancashire
Emma Ann Warburton; born c1889, Irlam, Lancashire
Andrew Warburton; born c1914, Broadheath, Cheshire
Meiviam Warburton; born c1919, Broadheath, Cheshire
Richard Cocks; born c1858, Denton, Lancashire
Mary Cocks; born c1866, Londonderry, Ireland

All info from free searches.

 I think the 1921 census gives a false picture because I know my great grandparents always had lodgers to help with the rent upto the 1930s but they don't appear on the form, they will have their own form as a separate household. I realised this because my other great grandparents were in lodgings but are on a form to themselves described as boarders. On previous census they seemed to list everybody in the house on one form.

If you read the instructions  o enumerators it appears tha boarders should be on the same form. My boarders are shown on same page

The latest issue of WDYTYA magazine has an article about the census, part of which says that many family historians will find their ancestors were not at home on census day but in a hotel or guest house due to it being carried out in the summer.

I wonder how many were missed because of that, especially if they were camping or self catering?

It would be interesting to find out how many people went camping  or self catered in 1921 and their social distribution.

Add - I did find some of my mother in law's family visiting relatives.

I've found this on Wiki about  holiday camps:

Quote
Opened in 1906 by John Fletcher Dodd, Caister Camp in Caister-on-Sea, Norfolk was one of the first permanent camps under canvas (tents), initially catering for men only, it would later open up to families and advertise itself as "The Oldest Established Camp".[3] By the early 1920s, Caister Camp and others around the country were beginning to include hut-based accommodation.
