Census Returns -
Census returns have been produced for each parish and township in England and Wales every ten years since 1801. The links below access transcriptions of the returns for each census from 1801 to 1911 plus tables and graphs showing the fluctuations in population between 1801 and 2011. Census returns with personal information are only available from 1841 to 1911, because of the 100 year privacy law. Earlier census returns from 1801 to 1831 only provided statistical information.
