It's not actually a census, it's a register taken on the eve of the war and is currently only available on Find my Past, now included on the monthly subscription.

You can read about it here

Carol if you want a look up on 1939 register message me and I will have a look for you.

By the way some of the records are closed mainly because of the age of the person.

Click on my name and you can send me the message.

..or in the case of my dad and aunt - another name was used :-|

Oh yes, and one of my grandmothers was mistranscribed as Skears, rather than Shears.
The other one used 4 different names on imprisonment in 1939 :-S :-S :-S :-S
We're a good family, honest guv :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D
