A brand new transcription of the 1901 census, complete with newly scanned high-quality images, is available on findmypast.com. They’ve just added the final 24 counties and other UK territories – which comprise over 5.6 million new records – so you can now search the census in full.
Although the 1901 census has been available for some time, they’re confident our new transcription is the most accurate online and will reveal many individuals whose names have been wrongly transcribed by other websites. And to make sure that they meet their commitment to providing you with the best quality images, all of the documents have been re-scanned.
If you’re unable to find your family on other versions of the 1901 census, then it’s well worth trying on findmypast.com.
The completion of the 1901 census brings findmypast.com a step closer to a full set of 1841-1901 England and Wales censuses. The 1851 census – the only remaining incomplete census – will be available in full within the next few months, and a full set of high-quality 1881 census images will be added to the transcriptions already available.
