I gave up on Findmypast when my subscription ran out. Tried in vain to get a refund, on the grounds that the site was unusable. Didn't really expect one, but enjoyed the tussle.
I'd guess I was not the only one.
Anyway I've just had an email saying that their site is completely free to anyone - from noon Friday 6th March to noon Monday 9th March 2015. They say they have changed the search facility. - So I was right then?
