Specific Census searching

Recommended Posts

Evening all,

I am wanting to search the 1901 Census for a specific address only. Does anyone know a way using Ancestry or FMP please?

The census search page at FMP has options for entering parts of the address. I find it a bit hit-and-miss especially as the transcription often makes mistakes in the spelling.

An indirect method I use quite often is to look at the street in a directory of about the right date and search for some names from nearby houses. I have a scanned copy of the Sheffield 1901 census I downloaded (for free) from Historical Directories (Leicester University)

Hello Hugh,

Many thanks for the link. I can find Whites Directories but I cant find the 1901 though?
