Janice, Its definitly worth downloading the decoder - I did so at the weekend. As far as I could tell, the PRO have changed some coding on their web site so that the census decoder can no longer give you page/folio number etc from the census records. It can still group members of the same household together through their personal ID numbers (well it did so at the weekend!) Natalie
