Missing page - 1891 census

    I have a question for the venerable minds of the forum - is there a way to tell Ancestry that they are missing a page of the 1891 census?

    The page in question is for Leverington, Cambridgeshire, and composes of the households from schedule numbers 19-25, which can easily be found on FindMyPast. Ancestry's scans of the census pages just skips the particular page completely and goes from 18 on the base of one page, to 26 on the next.

    The reference is: Piece 1303, Folio 5, page 4 of the 1891 census for Leverington.

    It was lucky that the page was on FindMyPast, as it contains the Smith family that I was searching on Ancestry for.
  2. What I would do is go to a household in the page immediately before or after the missing page then click on Report a Problem at left then tell them what is missing.
    I've reported problems with about missing records many a time but I can't say I've ever followed up to see if a correction has been made.

    I have done as you have suggested and reported it as a missing attached to the household immediately prior to the missing page. Now it's just to see what happens next.
