• The 1881 British Census includes England, Wales, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Mann, and Scotland. The British government took its first national census in 1801. A census has been taken every ten years since that date, except during WWII in 1941. The first genealogically useful census was not taken until 1841, when names were recorded. Almost everyone was included in the census, documenting approximately 30 million individuals. Information includes each person's name, age, sex, name of the head of the house, relationship to the head of house, marital status, census place, occupation, as well as the county and parish where born.

UK Census Data

The 1841 United Kingdom Census was taken on the night of 6 June 1841.  Enumeration forms were distributed to all households a before the census night and the household was required to complete the forms themselves. People who were traveling or living abroad were enumerated at the location where they spent the night on census night. The enumerators collected the completed forms the following day which were later sorted and copied into enumerators' books, which are the records we have today. The original householders schedules from 1841 to 1901 were destroyed. The information requested on the census included: Houses (whether inhabited, uninhabited or a building); name of each person that spent the night of the census in that household; age (see note)* and sex of each person (males were in one column, females in a separate column); occupation, profession, trade, of independent means; whether born in the same county as the enumeration, or whether born in Scotland (S), Ireland (I), or a Foreign parts (F).

*NOTE: Ages up to 15 are listed exactly as reported, but ages over 15 were rounded to the nearest 5 years (rounded down) . So, a person aged 54 would be listed on the census as age 50; someone aged 29 would be recorded as 25 years.
