  • 1921 Census

    The 1921 U.K. census will soon be available online through FindMyPast (‘early’ 2022). It apparently contains more occupational information than previous censuses, including the names of employers. That will be very useful In my opinion. It should be possible, for example, to search by Harrison, Barber and get a complete list of their workforce.

    Although many of the JTR ‘cast of thousands’ had probably died by 1921, a number of interesting characters that we’ve looked at over the years should appear. Biddy the Chiver and Billy Maher immediately spring to mind. And it’ll be interesting to see who was living in places like Pennington Street, Shovel Alley and Rich Street - not forgetting Dorset Street, Thrawl Street etc.
