The LDS have a free site to search for people on the 1881 census
It is a transcription of the census and there may be mistakes so you do have to try variations of names. But free and will help on the way.

Just to add to Jo's posting the 1881 is also useful as a rough and ready index to the 1871 and 1891 censuses.
Unfortunately due to denial of permission it does not include Scotland online, however if your ancestors were in Scotland in 1881 I am willing to do look-ups on the cd version.
No requests before Tuesday please when I get my desktop back.

Thankyou both for the offer of a look-up, however ...... you didn't say whether your CD is searchable by surname or not.

If it isn't, please ignore my request as I don't want you to trawl, but if it is ..... could you look for any PURDON families in Stirlingshire for me please?

Hi Diane,

they are searchable by surname and first name and can do address search in a fashion too. I will send you all the Purdons and variations that have come up to your messages.

Jo :)

Thankyou very much Jo for the two messages and the long list! There are six on it which I have very high hopes for :) so I'll write to you direct at home with them.
