1921 Census for England and Wales available from 6 January 2022

The National Archive will be publishing the 1921 Census for England and Wales online via Findmypast on 6 January 2022.

The 1921 Census will offer us a glimpse into the lives of individuals and communities between the two world wars, recovering from a great influenza pandemic, and embarking on a new era where everyday rights and roles were changing.

What makes the 1921 Census even more vital is that it will be the last census release for England and Wales for 30 years, with the 1931 Census lost in a fire and the 1941 Census cancelled due to the Second Wold War.

You can use Findmypast on the computers in Lewes Library, and at The Keep.

Searching the 1921 Census on Findmypast will be free but there will be a charge of £2.50 for every record transcript and £3.50 for every original record image viewed. Alternatively, viewing the digital images of the 1921 Census of England and Wales is free on the premises at The National Archives at Kew.

See Lewes History Group’s listing of research resources for family history, house history, historical images, newspapers, and much more.
