The 1901 Census for Orwell, Cambridgeshire.
Reference: Ref.RG13/1521(with acknowledgement to the Public Record Office)
Date of Census: 31 March 1901
There is a national Census every ten years when the year ends in a one. This page details the population of the Parish of Orwell on the night of 31 March 1901 (the list includes children and visitors from outside the parish in temporary residence within Orwell on the date of the census).
My thanks and acknowledgements to the 'census team' who provided the documentation and who typed and checked the various page transcripts. Particular thanks to Mike Giddings, Susan Giddings, Alexandra Morton and John Parkins for all their help, assistance and encouragement.
Columns (left to right):
   1. Name.
   2. Relation to Head of Household.
   3. Married, Widow, Widowed or Single.
   4. Age.
   5. Occupation.
   6. Place of Birth.
The house numbers or references shown below were those used in 1891 and therefore unlikely to relate to present day postal addresses.
[Information, notes and comments additional to the 1901 Census are generally shown italicised within square brackets]

Census Records (Parish of Orwell):
Census 1881: Part One Part Two Part Three New Orwell [2]
Census 1891: Part One Part Two Part Three [1] New Orwell [2]
Census 1901: Part One [1] Part Two [1] Part Three [1] New Orwell [2]
[1] These pages are being rebuilt after their transfer to the new website. The full Census listings remain available for reference during the rebuilding.
[2] Following a parish boundary change in April 1999, much of the area of Orwell on the Cambridge Road, previously known as 'New Orwell', is now part of the Parish of Wimpole.
[3] The 1881 Orwell Census is rebuilt and complete as are all three 'New Orwell' pages.

Continued from Part One

The 1891 census below [with yellow background] started as a direct lift from my 2003 web page. I have already tidied up some of the old source code. The census information given remains valid [if somewhat untidy]. The individual entries will be re-formatted [with white background as above] and the page fully re-issued in due course.
