Census Data - 1861 (7th April)


The General Register Office was responsible for taking the census, so it used the administrative framework already in place for the registration of births, marriages and deaths. The Superintendent Registrar was responsible for collecting the returns from each Registrar of Births and Deaths in their registration district, and sending them to the Census Office in London. Each Registrar of Births and Deaths was responsible for a sub-district, which they divided into enumeration districts (EDs), and recruited enumerators for each ED.

Enumerators' schedules of returns made by heads of households for the 1861 census, which include the names, age, sex, occupation and parish and county of birth of individual members of the population of England, Wales, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. Included in this series are returns from ships of the Royal Navy and merchant shipping at sea and in ports abroad, and from British ships in home ports. The series also includes descriptions of the proposed enumeration districts for London.
