Hi

Ancestry.com is charging a subscription fee to access census records for England, e.g., 1871.

Do downloadable records exist for say 1851, 1861, 1871, 1881?

www.familysearch.com has the 1881 census - free , but transcription only.

1861 is coming on to www.1837online.com - but it is "pay as you view"

It is only partially on-line.

London, Middlesex, Surrey and Kent are online now.

Coming soon ... Essex, Lancashire, Yorkshire and Worcestershire.

(according to their website today)

As Jan says, the 1861 is partially online, with more counties to follow. It can be accessed at www.1837online.com and is free to search but viewing of images and transcriptions is chargeable at about 25-30p per search, depending on the number of units that you buy. (It costs 3 units per viewing)

The 1871, 1881, 1891 and 1901 census can all be viewed online by subscription at www.ancestry.com. Broadly speaking, £85 per annum will get you full access to these, plus lots of other interesting bits'n'pieces. You can also take out a trial subscription for a limited period.

The transcription of the 1881 census (no images) can be found at http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/fra...arch_census.asp. This census is generally felt to have more transcription errors than the others.

And of course the 1901 census can be searched for free with images and transcriptions chargeable at www.census.pro.gov.uk

Cheers

Cleveland Family History Society (CFHS) have issued a CD Rom for the South Durham/Northern North Yorkshire (this includes the former county of Cleveland) area for the 1891 census. It only gives name, age and place of birth and town/village living in 1891 but it is easily searchable. I have a copy and don't mind doing checks for people.

The CD Rom is called 'ENOCH' and can be bought from CFHS for about £30.00.
