Hullbridge 1911 Census

1911 Census Transcription.

The 1911 Census of England and Wales was taken on the night of Sunday, 2 April 1911.
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.
Questions about employment were meant to give the government a general idea of which industries were in decline and which were growing.
An unusual feature of the 1911 census is the absence of some women’s names. In 1911, women had not yet been given the right to vote in England. As part of the campaign for women’s suffrage, many suffragettes protested by refusing to be counted in the 1911 census. They carried out their protest in two ways: either the woman (or her husband) did not fill out the census form, writing only her complaint on it, or she stayed away from the house the entire night of the census taking. In both cases details on women of these households will be missing from the records. The exact number who boycotted the census is not known, but it has been estimated at several thousand.

The 1911 records are extremely informative and I hold copies of all the Parish of Hockley. Because of their size of content and also so as not to upset certain parties I am not displaying the full content and records, only those relating to Hullbridge.
Should you wish copies / details of a particular record please contact me and I will try to accomodate.
