1921 Census

The census took place on Sunday 19th June 1921. It was originally planned that the census would be taken on the night of 24th April 1921 but this was delayed because of strikes.

The question introduced in 1911 about the number of children was dropped, the reason given was that the results from the previous census had not yet been tabulated. Also the question about blindness, deafness or dumbness was removed on the grounds that the parents had objected to giving this information about their children with the result that answers given in the previous census were unreliable.

Extra questions asked were: whether a marriage had been dissolved by divorce; where each person worked; the industry within which someone worked.

These records have been transcribed from the 1921 schedules digitised by Findmypast.    Thanks are due to the following members of The Badsey Society who transcribed and checked the census data: Rosemary Blyth, Alex Christison, Jane Croucher, Karen Evans, Wendy Gwynn, Val Harman, Tom Locke, Kerry Moreton, John Patrick, John Sharp, Lyn Sharp, Stephanie Shearman, Maureen Spinks, Peter Stewart, Shirley Tutton and Gill Woods.
