1921 Census

Free access is available to the 1921 Census within the Library building through Findmypast.

This is the latest census to be released and the most detailed, as it includes information regarding education and names of employers.

The next census, the 1951 census, will not be available until 2052 because the 1931 census was lost in a fire and no census was taken in 1941 due to World War II.
