1891 Census Sheets
The 1891 Census was taken on the night of Sunday 5th April 1891. The information collected was the same as in 1881 with the addition of questions about the number of rooms occupied, whether someone was an employer, employed or neither, and in Wales the language spoken.
It was the fourth of the UK censuses to include details of household members. The Census of England, Wales, Scotland, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man collected detailed information on each individual who spent the night in an individual household.
This was also the first census to employ women census takers
