I have an old house and the quarry tiled floor in the pantry has sunk in the middle. I want to level the entire pantry floor, then lay cement backed board, and tile over it. What should I use to level the floor before laying board over it? Would sand do it? Complete novice, and not much money, so please be kind and walk me through it. Thanks.

I think that I'd prefer to do it with a screed of some description, but you say the floor has sunk, so what exactly is beneath the tiles? Is it a timber sub-floor, a concrete one or something else? It would be best to know this before deciding on a course of action as the sinking might indicative of another problem (which would need to be fixed), or just be another piece of Victorian (?) quality building
