Future Research Needed

1871 UK Census I can find no 15 or16 year old male Craske or Craske on the 1871 UK Census. It is possible the following is correct and he lied about his age to start his apprenticeship It is also possible that the Suffolk Census record has not been completely digitalized. The Green, Roughan, Suffolk. RG10/1724, Folio 68, Page 20, Shedule 65 Slack, George. Head, Married, 43, Carpenter, born Yaxley, Huntingdonshire Slack, Mary Ann.

1891 UK Census George's wife and family are all listed together at Glemsford, Suffolk, but George himself is not there on 5 April and I can't find him anywhere else.
