The only cut off date I can think of is for Census's. The latest available
census
available for viewing is 1920.

Charlie, you need to be careful when posting such statements to UK-oriented
lists such as this. The 1920 date refers only to USA census records. UK
census records are closed for 100 years, unlike the 72 years in the States,
so the latest UK census open to the public is 1891.
Gordon.
