The 1911 Census of England and Wales was taken on the night of Sunday, 2 April 1911. Prior to that day, householders were left a form requesting the following information be provided for every person staying at the house on the night of 2 April:

  • name
  • relationship to head of family
  • age at last birthday
  • sex
  • marriage details (including number of children)
  • occupation (for people age 10 and over)
  • birthplace
  • nationality
  • infirmity (deaf, blind, lunatic, etc.)
  • postal address
  • military rank and unit

Because responses were to reflect an individual's status as of 2 April 1911, people who were traveling or living abroad were enumerated at the location where they spent census night. Enumerators also provided forms to institutions such as hospitals, prisons, and workhouses. Men on Royal Navy and merchant marine vessels were counted, as were the families of military personnel stationed overseas. Census takers even tried to approximate the homeless population.
