I must admit I am very excited at the prospect of seeing the 1921 census.   :D

Well, the 1911 census revealed I had found the wrong paternal grandfather and so had to delete several HUNDRED "ancestors" from my tree. I look forward to the next census with a sense of apprehension but also some excitement.

As already mentioned, this is the first census with both my parents on it so I will see my father with his family in Sunderland before they moved south in 1928/9. There will be many people I will have known in my childhood (in the fifties).

This 1921 release will complete the England & Wales census releases for my lifetime unless I live to be 154.
Thomas, Davies, Jones, Walters, Daniel in Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion. That should narrow it down a bit!
Vincent: Fressingfield, Suffolk, Stockton & Sunderland.
Murtha/Murtaugh: Dundalk & Sunderland
Ingram: Cairnie by Huntly, Scotland then Abergavenny
Bardouleau: London - in memory of my stepmother Annie Rose née Bardouleau who put up with a lot from me.

I haven't been able to trace my Great Grandfather's younger years or find his birth family due to different DOB & ages on the 1901 & 1911 Census, 1939 Register also Marriage Certificate. So I wait in anticipation to see what comes up on the 1921 Census, perhaps I will find him at last!

BIB Are you sure? The next census after the 1921 should be the 1951 census in 2052 shouldn't it? if so that would make you 121 now.


My plan is to stop after the 1921 census is released. I have found out more than I ever thought likely and what I have not found out by 2022 someone else can look for  ;)

Oops. I am seventy-one and decline to attempt any further arithmetical peregrination.

Not so much a brick wall, but rather an annoying mystery. A family in my wife's tree went from being very wealthy (two dwelling houses and five commercial premises) on the south coast in 1911 to abject poverty and destitution in Hull in 1939. By 1945 they had all managed to get themselves killed by enemy action. Whereas all the properties in the south were untouched. 

I am certainly looking forward to it.

I'm biting at the bit wanting to see the Scottish 1921 census, as it should solve the problem of which "John Crum" nephew was living at a specific address and thus was the sole heir mentioned in the will of their Aunt Lillias.

MidLothian: Mason,Telford,Darling,Cruikshanks,Bennett,Sime, Bell
Lanarks:Crum, Brown, MacKenzie,Cameron, Glen, Millar
Ross, Urray:Mackenzie
Moray: Findlay; Marshall/Marischell
Perthshire: Brown Ferguson
Wales: McCarthy, Thomas
England: Almond, Askin, Dodson, Harrison, Maw, McCarthy, Munford, Pye, Shearing, Smith, Smythe, Speight, Strike, Wallis/Wallace, Ward, Wells
Germany: Flamme,Ehlers, Bielstein, Germer, Mohlm, Reupke

I am looking forward to see my Mother and some of her siblings on the 1921 census and also to learn a few bits of background information too. I already know about my Father in 1921 as he was born in St. John's NFLD and the 1921 census was release there years ago.

That's very young for a diplodocus.  ;D
Speaking of ages, it will be interesting to see what age my Irish GF put. His age went backwards from 1901 census. By 1911 his age on census matched that of his younger sister in Ireland who had made a great leap forward, age-wise, from 1901 census.
I know where all the main people were in 1921, same place as their parents in 1911. Most of their grandparents died between 1911 and 1920.
