1911 England and Wales Census

I've enjoyed having a look at the preview of the 1911 census for England and Wales:

Unfortunately they've not covered all counties yet, so I'll have to wait before I can find my Yorkshire relatives.  It's easy to search but I think it's rather expensive, at around £1 per trancript and £3 per image!

I've currently got a subscription with Ancestry, so am wondering about swopping to Find My Past when they include the 1911 census in their subscription packages.   

It's hard when comparing packages to work out who has 100% coverage for the different years and whether thay are using different trancriptions.  I think at present Find My Past have yet to complete 1851 and 1901.  I've not yet used The Genealogist, which some say has better scans of the 1841 census.  Has anyone transcribed the 1881 census other than the Family Search which I gather Ancestry use?

It will be nice when Free Cen increase their coverage....

  1. Beta testing is now over so now we'll have to wait until they release the 1911 census later this year.
