    The forums migration at CPanel still burns hot in some memories, the post formats were not carried through in every case, and a few posts that were made around the time of migration were lost forever!
    Signing up with FindMyPast probably won’t help as much as desired, even with a subscription. Their free services include:

    1881 England, Wales & Scotland Census (transcripts are free)
    All Irish censuses 1821-1911
    Irish Roman Catholic Parish Registers
    Britain, Campaign, Gallantry & Long Service Medals & Awards (transcripts are free)
    All BillionGraves cemetery records
    All Canadian censuses 1851-1911

    Meagre pickings for some, no doubt, in the Stearn case, the 1881 census did help a bit. In the meantime really hanging out for “free” 1891 and 1901 censuses, (which should be free anyway, thus curated by the government in its own website, as the census has, is, and always will (or should) be a state run initiative.)
