Information on the 1921 Census for England & Wales

Postby Guy » Tue May 07, 2019 6:12 am

The 1921 census goes further, in genealogical terms, than the 1911 census as it should record not only the number & ages of all living children & stepchildren under 16 years of age of married men, widowers, and widows but also for children under 15 years of age, whether both parents alive, mother dead, father dead, or both parents dead.

As we have gained from the past, we owe the future a debt, which we pay by sharing today.
