Original Census downloads

I find all original Censuses on GR can be downloaded as .jpeg files except the 1901 or am I missing something.The 1901 Census appears to only be downloaded as a .htm file. Can this be corrected


Fredk Report 15 Mar 2013 16:51

I notice I have no post as yet from GR

Fredk - although GR staff members are known to reply on suggestion threads, it is not that frequent. They have said that they read the posts.

If you wanted to draw attention to the problem, try sending an email to

Just don't hold your breath for a speedy solution!

I have same problem, waiting for feedback from Support team

I think we will wait and wait and wait

Recieved this from GR

I can confirm that all the census records can be downloaded as a .jpeg apart
from the 1901 census, which are pdf files.
Still rather have it the same as the others for consistancy
