Trying to find the Parry family in 1841 and having no luck, I tried a search for just an area - Prescot, Lancs and this is one of the images

I can only assume that the records got a bit burnt!

So no wonder I cannot find the family with so many missing due to the burning!

There are reams and reams of Census papers missing, so never be surprised. Alongside the fire damaged, and the water soaked images, and the amount that fell like confetti off the back of open lorries when transported, it could be worse. The only census that survived in Ireland, were the 1901 and 1911.
