This is a snippet I posted in a related question Children born overseas to British Subjects — what is their citizenship status?

1911 Census Citizenship entry

1 Answer 1


Via a search of ukbmd.org.uk which was suggested by @ColeValleyGirl for another question, I found these links on FindMyPast:

The key for the occupation codes also has a link to the original occupation sheet on histpop.

The tally sheet for the birthplaces is image 10 of 14 in that set of images on histpop.

    As 1911census.co.uk is no longer online, I have updated the links to the equivalent pages on FMP
