1911: A Vision of England

David Annal introduces the 1911
census and shows what it reveals about society at the time.


The 1911 census was the 12th national census of the United Kingdom, and in many ways it represented a watershed in the history of census taking in this country – it was the first to use electronic technology and was by far the most intrusive. The census captured a picture of society at the time when the ‘upstairs downstairs’ world was about to be turned upside down. It records
Britain’s ‘lost generation’ – the 885,000 men who would lose their lives fighting in the war – and it adds a fascinating insight into one of the most important issues of the day, the campaign to give women the vote. In this talk, David Annal introduces the 1911
census and shows what it reveals about society at the time.

David Annal was formerly the Principal Family History Specialist at The National Archives and is the author of Census:
The Expert Guide.
