Hi
Can someone help me please.
Henry was born Rochdale 1771 and on Family search it says there is an 1841 census in Rochdale as follows:

Name Henry Wigglesworth
Event Type Census
Event Date 1841
Gender Male
Age 70

I have an Ancestry sub but try as I might I cannot bring up this census record.

Christine - just a tip for future ref - try searching without a surname, but with all other info in place - this narrows it down.
