1911 England & Wales Census is free, free, free

All three major database providers for UK records – Ancestry, FindMyPast UK and Genes Reunited – are currently offering free access to the 1911 England and Wales census.

Ancestry's offer covers transcriptions and images of census returns. It has been available since the middle of August and will expire on 2 November.

Find My Past's offer covers transcriptions only. It is new this week and will continue until 18 November. There's also currently a free 14-day trial to the entire record collection on offer.

GenesReunited, being the sister company of FMP, has introduced the same offer to view census transcriptions this week and it, too, will continue until 18 November.
