Problem with the 1861 Census

Hi

Just to give you a heads up I have just noticed that the 1861 census for Surrey > Witley > District 4 > 21 original is not matching the info in the Ancestry index box at the bottom. Here is a link to the page to see what I mean

If you look at the image and then the text that is in the box below they don't match up. They are not the correct names, and the simple male/female count is different. I have gone through the whole of this document and it is an issue all the way through. Just looking at the first 2 pages where the census summary is the box at the bottom is listing people as if it were a normal census page. Not sure if this is happening throughout the 1861 census, but worth double checking.

I have reported the error via the report a problem button but it is just a simple drop down box and doesn't really allow for the detail I have given here. I have contacted the support email address as well, but it appears that just relates to IT issues rather than this type of thing. Hopefully it will be sorted soon.
