Working with Census Returns

To make the most of the census of Great Britain, you need to know what information it contains, how to apply this information, and facts about access. What follows is a concise guide to essential information (but the best teacher is practical experience).

Apart from minor differences in supplementary details, the census returns for 1851 through 1891 provide the following:
* Address or location
* Name of each person in the household
* Marital status
* Sex
* Relationship to the head of the household

Many sets of official records were kept for England and Wales together.  For almost 500 years, Welsh government business has been conducted in London.  Locating and using genealogy records are very similar for both countries. 

Census enumerations have been taken every 10 years since 1801 with the exception of 1941.  The most recent year available to the public is 1901.

The 1841 census is the earliest census containing names.  Individual data contained in census records has increased with each census year.

A "Stray" is: a recorded event in which a person is described in the record as being from or connected with, a place (in this case a County) outside the area in which they normally lived.
