1911 England Census Summary Books

The British government took its first national census in 1801. A census has been taken every ten years since that date, except in 1941. The first genealogically useful census, however, was not taken until 1841 when names were recorded. This database holds census books for the year 1911 in England and offers additional information about the population due to the governments’ concerns about health issues in the population, frequent emigration from the country, and the rapid rise and decline of several industries, which prompted them to collect additional data. Some information is missing because many women boycotted the 1911 census — refusing to be counted— in response to the government’s denial of the vote to women. for more click here
