CLARKE, Albert 1911 Census Lookup
« on: Monday 03 November 14 02:41 GMT (UK) »
Wondering is anyone can do a lookup in the 1911 UK Census for me:

Name: Albert  CLARKE
Age:    24
Occupation: Turner Iron Works
County: Shropshire
Born: 1887
Birthplace: Dawley

I believe this Albert is my Grandfather, who immigrated to US in 1916.

Thank you in advance.

 There's  another  Albert  Clarke  born  Madeley   on  1891  ,   so  this  may  be the  one   who  died  ,   there's  a war  record that gives  Madeley  as his POB ,

Wow you guys are the best!!
The 1891 Census looks like the one!
(also thanks for the restriction info on the 1911 census....I wasn't sure about that but posted question anyway - thought maybe someone could have access to film)
Albert came to US in 1916 and settled in New York. Married Harriett Erdmann in 1918. Had my dad, Albert Clarke in 1919. Albert Sr. died in the 1950s here in NY.
I've just broken through a brick wall!! Thanks to everyone!!! :)
