GRO Census entries 1841 - 1911 - Yearly totals by County

These figures relate to the numbers I hold for each of the census years in the UK, using my own extractions from census films, on-line transcriptions and indexes, and other census records held on CD. I would not claim it is comprehensive, as there are entries no doubt waiting to still be discovered where the writing is poor and difficult to read. If the county does not appear in the list below then no entries have been found in any census year.
