Yes I agree Mike - I was rather nervous about having a repeat of the 1901 Census saga, but the site has proved robust. I can remember queuing to view the 1891 Census on microfiche when it was first released, so I think that we should celebrate just how far things have advanced.

I'm with you Alan. We should be celebrating the fact that this great resource is available three years early, something that we didn't get with previous census releases, and something that we won't get with the 1921 census (as it is closed for 100 years under the 1920 Census Act). Findmypast have done a great job and I find the site really easy to use.

And also it doesn't seem to have had the teething troubles that the 1901 Census did. I just went to it Tuesday and got on straight away - promptly finding a "new" great-uncle and great-aunt. Excellent!
