Does anyone know when we can view the census for 2021 ? I was looking forward to seeing this as I would like to know where family was then ,as they seem too be discrepancies to where they were and who they were with ,I did hear that 2021 wont be due for viewing till 2022 so feeling disappointed ,not sure how true this is,,all last year I was thinking soon be 2021 to view the censor, now not so sure if we can .

The census is closed for 100 years.

Do you mean the 1921 census, Sandra?

From a Google search;

The census, which was the first to be conducted following the introduction of the Census Act of 1920, will be published online by Findmypast in January 2022.
