Hi all is anyone else having problems searching the 1911 census. I can search all other census but the 1911 just keeps coming up error. I have reported it to Genes but not heard anything back yet. I have tried searching on my laptop and my tablet both with no success, has anyone got any ideas how to solve it.

I never use GR for finding records, but tried looking at 1911 just now.
I get that same message.

GR sometimes has odd blips.
It'll probably sort itself out. I would just try again tomorrow, if I were you.

If it persists, email: uk

They usually reply within 3-5 working days, though may take a bit longer at present.

That's the standard message on ALL GR 'errors'

TBH, I would never try to search on GR records
