England Street Index Register 1841

The title at the top of this page says '1841 Census', but it is not the 1841 Census. The page should say '1841 Census Street Place Name Index for England', or something to that effect. The links to different letters of the alphabet are at the top of the page and easily missed. The contents found on each page needs to be copied and added to the Wiki.I don't think it should be copied to the wiki.  It should just be linked.  When you go to the page there is no explanation of the source and no links to an explanation.   It appears that it is complete index and it isn't.
