Census look up 1841 1851

Hello all I have been doing my tree for a couple of years now, I live in Suffolk my searches have been been going further north as I get into the 1800s.
I was spoilt in Cambridgeshire which has the best Family search data bases I have seen but now I am in Lincolnshire. Could I possible have a 1841 and 1851 search done on Sarah Hall Born 1837 in Deeping Lincolnshire and William Smith Born 1841 Rippingale Lincoln
Sarah`s middle name could be Ann.
Thanks for your time

Hi Andy,

With putting in 1837 with 5yrs either side 1841 shows up 20 Sarah Hall's 2 of which are Sarah Ann. As the 1841 census dosnt give household relationships and only yes or no if born in county its hard to determine which one she is. The 1851 census brings up 12 putting 2yrs either side of 1837, with 1 Sarah Ann, none coming up with born Deeping.
