Strange code on 1939 Census

Postby hobbes199 » Mon Jun 25, 2018 5:05 pm

Hi all,

I'm researching the mystery behind my husband's grandmother, and on her entry for the 1939 census, under the instructions column, is says 'See YWOT' and then a code. I've googled, but to no avail.
I've attached an image for clarity.

Any help greatly appreciated.

I think it's YW07 rather than YW0T, and it may be a code for the use of the enumerator. For instance, it could refer to a continuation entry - where a line against someone's name was full and a new line was created, usually at the back of the enumeration book. If you go onto the National Archives website, there's a lot of info about the Register and how it was compiled.

Have you checked the last pages of the enumerators schedule, sometimes there is further info!

Thank you both. I did indeed check the last pages, but all withheld records unfortunately.
Why I'm curious is that there should be two young girls listed at the address. I'm now presuming that they are on the final pages as an addendum.
