1911 census summary books for England and Wales now on Ancestry

Ancestry is making available a partial substitute for the 1911 censuses.  The census summary books, compiled by the enumerator, are available as colour images and indexed.

The form, as in this sample, gives address, type of building, occupier, whether unoccupied/occupied or building, whether being used as a dwelling, and number of males, females and total people in the building.

These are available for England, Wales, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.

You may find the system buggy - after getting some data as above I kept getting a "please search again" message.
