Trouble finding census's

Journal by eastville

I am finding on numerous occasions that one or more census's can't be found during my research. There may be many reasons why this may be the case; such as mis-spelt surname or christian names, incorrect data entry, no entry given. But there is another reason being census records destroyed by fire or similar fate.

It's the latter I am inquiring about. Are there any details of what census records are not available. If there is, then I could refer to the list to save many hours searching for something I will never find. It will also indicate that I could continue searching.

Thanks in antisipation

Sorry I made an assumption that I was referring to England census's. I discussion with other members my best way forward is to seek census records for individuals.

I am searching a census record for 1901 for a Sarah Shaw born 1835 Sutton-In-Ashfield. She was married to James Shaw 1829 Chellaston, Derbyshire, who died in 1896. Sarah died in 1909 in Condor Park, Derbyshire. I have all the census records for James & Sarah up to 1891. In 1891 they lived in Condor Park, Derbyshire.

In 1891 James & Sarah Shaw had three of their children living with them Thomas (1871), Frederick (1875) and Ada (1878). I know nothing from 1891 with these three children.

Thank you.
