    I am trying to locate my 4x Great grandparents in 1861 and 1871 census.

    In 1851 Thomas and Elizabeth Clay were living in Harrow, Middlesex where Thomas was aged 70 and a Carpenter and Elizabeth aged 60 - H0107/1700/158/17.

    There is a possible death of Elizabeth - at least a burial of an Elizabeth Clay born c. 1790 which fits - in St. John's, Wembley 16 Nov. 1871. Sadly I can't find a death on GRO.
    There is a death for Thomas i- at least a burial in Camden on 14 Sep. 1866 - but this I think is for a 32 year old who died 3rd q in Pancras so I can eliminate. I can't find anything else that fits

    Yes indeed Thomas Clay buried 14 Sep 1866 was a 32 year old according to the burial record for St Pancras Cemetery.

    It would appear that the burial record as transcribed on Ancestry is incorrect.

    Obviously as she in November 1870 the burial could not be a year later!!

    Any joy in finding her in 1861?

    And of course Wembley was, until 1947, in the Hendon Registration District

    If you look at the Ancestry baptism at top it says 1870 & 1 I think its a 2 year page the first 4 are 1870 and then it goes to 1871

    Have you looked at the original on Ancestry? She was buried on 16 November 1870.
