Can anybody help, I have lost the family I am looking for in the 1891 census they are there 1881 and 1901 but cannot find in 1891. I have done a * search on the first 3 letters but to no avail. The family is Samuel (b:1858) & Ann (b:1861)Holmes, Darley Dale Derbyshire.

If you want to view the original try looking for Sally Gregory 1822 Darley, Derbyshire. She's on the same page as your family
