1911 English and Welsh census on Ancestry

Ancestry (www.ancestry.co.uk) has uploaded the 1911 census images for England and Wales, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. However the records cannot be searched as yet, merely browsed, though the census summary books can help to locate the relevant families. Until now, the only images available were those from the census summary books - this is the whole thing.

It is also worth mentioning that The Genealogist (www.thegenealogist.co.uk) has uploaded searchable versions of the same census for a handful of London districts, with more to come in due course.

UPDATE: Ancestry has just uploaded an announcement on its blog also - see http://blogs.ancestry.com/uk/2011/05/24/1911-census-images-online-today/
