1911 Census Sheets
The 1911 census was a household census taken on the night of Sunday 2nd April 1911.
It holds information on every household, vessel, institution and overseas residencies that were part of England and Wales in 1911 (including some ships at sea, and some army units stationed overseas). A full entry would contain names of persons in each household, age, occupation, position in household (i.e. head, wife, son, grandfather etc), whether they had any illnesses and the full address of the property where they were residing that night.
The 1911 census is the first census where the householder’s schedule has remained the master entry, rather than the enumerator’s notes, so in most cases the handwriting belongs to your actual ancestor.
