    Thanks for that @MollyMay . One of the census I couldn't find on FMP, but found it on Anc. Their name's quite clear, so just got missed in transcribing. :rolleyes:

    Missing from 1861 census
    You can use The National Archives catalogue to find out which parishes or districts are known to be missing from the 1861 census. Use the keyword ‘missing’ to search within series RG 9 in our catalogue. You can also identify pages which are known to be missing within some enumeration districts by using the exact phrase ‘missing pages’ within RG 9.

    Just checked it out on this link. They were in the same parish in 1851 and 1871, guess what... yes that parish is the one missing. Sorry I sent you on a wild goose chase everyone.:( Keep forgetting to check for missing pages.:rolleyes:

    Before the census came online I bought from 41 to 91 on CD for Sussex, the 61 was badly transcribed online. I have places on CD that are not there online. So it’s down to the people who did it. I have complained several times to fmp, but nothing changes.
