Census Returns

The census returns record details of people present in England and Wales on the date of each census. From 1841, the census returns for England and Wales were compiled using the same system of registration districts and sub-districts that was used for the registration of births, marriages and deaths. This means that there is a direct link between the two most important 19th-century sources for family historians.

Each registrar's sub-district was divided into a number of enumeration districts, each of which was the responsibility of an enumerator. The enumerator delivered a form known as a schedule to each household a few days before census night, and collected the completed schedules the day after. The schedules were then sorted, and the details copied into the census enumerators' books.

It is these books which have survived for 1841 to 1901 and which can be seen today. The original householders' schedules were later destroyed with the exception of 1911.

This allows researchers to see the subject's handwriting as well as some unsolicited supplementary information. Other details include:
