Crowland/Croyland is both a village and a parish - Croyland Abbey being the parish church.

There is a lot of interesting information on Google. :-)

Here's how to find out what places (rather than church parishes) were in Crowland registration subdistrict. You've posted a list of places in Perborough RD, so we just look them up in the NA catalogue:

It's easiest to do for 1881 - the census code for that year was rg11. First, we need to know which piece #s were assigned to Crowland, so we look up Crowland:

Registration District 167.PETERBOROUGH. Registration Sub-District 3A Crowland.
Reference:RG 11/1597

Registration District 167.PETERBOROUGH. Registration Sub-District 3B Crowland.
Reference:RG 11/1598

Now, any place with a piece # of 1597 or 1598 is in Crowland subdistrict - e.g.:
Civil Parish, Township or Place: Glinton.
Reference:RG 11/1598

NB Do an advanced search on the place name, and
Search within
Reference: rg11

************ EDIT *************
Should have said I also searched for rg11/1596 and rg11/1599 to make sure they weren't Crowland, so I had gotten all the Crowland piece #s.

Scroll down on this link.

Not sure if it helps or hinders, but might help explain time scale for finding( or not) of records.

"The parish was head of the Crowland Sub-district of the Peterborough Registration District."

It was exciting to see that the Linconshire parishes are no online. Problem is Croyland (Crowland) isn't in the selection list. Do one of the very clever 'genies' know. :-S
