Census Returns

The first census in England and Wales was conducted on 10th March 1801. Since then, a census has been conducted every ten years. Unfortunately the very early censuses taken before 1841 were destroyed so this information is no longer available. The 1841 Census of England, Wales, Scotland, Channel Islands and Isle of Man was taken on the night of 6/7 June 1841. It was the first census conducted by the General Register Office to record the names of everyone in a household or institution. Information available in this collection includes place and name, age, gender, occupation and birthplace of each individual who spent the night in individual households.
