What we can learn from the 1921 census

7.30 pm

Back in January of this year, Maureen Spinks and Shirley Tutton spoke to members about the 1921 census which had just been published.  Maureen had just been to The National Archives at Kew to download all the images for Badsey, Aldington and Wickhamford.  A team of volunteers was on hand to begin transcribing the records.  In double-quick time, the records were published on our website. The results of the census have now been analysed.  Maureen painted a picture of what our villages were like a hundred years ago and compared the results with national figures.
