The 1901 Census was taken on the night of Sunday 31st March 1901.
The following information was recorded in the schedules about each dwelling and person residing there on the night of the census:
- the address
- whether the dwelling was "inhabited" or "uninhabited" or "building"
- the number of rooms occupied, if less than five
- name and surname of each person residing at the dwelling on the night of the census
- relationship of each person to the head of the family
- each person's marital status ("condition as to marriage")
- age at last birthday and sex
- profession, or occupation
- whether someone was an employer, a worker or "own account"
- whether working at home
- where born, parish and county (or if born outside of England or Wales, just the country)
- whether they were "blind", or "deaf and dumb" or "lunatic" or "imbecile, feeble minded"
- in Wales and the Isle of Man, the language spoken
The information collected was the same as in 1891 apart from one extra detail, whether someone was working at home. Also the language spoken question was extended to include the Isle of Man as well as Wales.
The 1901 census was the first to be completely transcribed as it became available to the public (well that was the plan but the public demand overwhelmed the Qinetiq developed web site so it was about six months before it became generally available). The site has since been sold to Genes Reunited.
