UK Censuses. Relate Census Information to Address.
« on: Wednesday 03 October 18 19:14 BST (UK) »
Can someone please explain how, given the Registration District, Number & Folio, a particular Census Entry can  be related to an address.

call up the image using the unique district, (book) number and folio and read off the address (if it has been entered). Earlier censuses in particular can be very vague about an address.

I think the question is how exactly do you do it?  I suppose it would depend on which website was being searched but I've never tried it.  I know Anc***** has a keyword box - would that be the place to enter the details?

Both Ancestry & FindMyPast have places on their search forms for entering the information.  You generally  have to select the search form for the year you want though.
You can find the separate years for these

I am afraid I appear not to have explained my query with sufficient clarity.
I know how to look up a census entry for an individual and his or her family.  I know that few of the entries have the address on them.
However, somewhere there is (or was) a record relating the number and folio  to a street or lane or something for the administration of the census at the time. These  markers  must surely run in some sort of sequence, shouldn’t they?  Therefore,  what I want to know is where the schedules that related the markers to the address can be found and how to access them.

So you mean a street index to the census pieces?

http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/help-with-your-research/research-guides/houses/

"Census records (1841-1911)"

There's an inkling that I read somewhere that Street indexes were not produced for pieces of fewer than (40000??) names.

" Online versions for the street indexes for 1841, 1851, 1861, 1871 and 1891 are preserved in the UK Government Web Archive." (TNA)

Plus this one for 1881! Not all districts included of course

Thanks for this, particularly the full link to the NA index. The location or street name in red in the left hand column returns "error 404 not available". Presumably, this detail emerges from the image when you log into Ancestry (which I am not currently on)?
