As of 16th Feb if you have signed up to FMP you now get free access to the 1939 register.

So far so good but I must say that I have found it very difficult to use!
If you have an address that you know people were in in 1939 then its very good but finding people is not so easy.
Most of the men I know exist at the time would appear to have been in the forces and so do not show on the register.
Now the hard bit, if the wife of someone who died in the war remarried then she will be listed with the second marriage surname, this is ok if you know it
not so good if you don't, this coupled with the fact that a lot of the offspring will still be living you have nothing else to latch on to hence my saying it is not easy to use.
If you do find someone then date of birth is useful as is the address although on one form the road name was blanked out(first name still living)

But all in all its good value as you get it for the money you have all ready doled out!
