Are you awaiting the 1921 Census release?
« on: Tuesday 23 June 20 11:03 BST (UK) »
I'm probably like so many of us awaiting for the release of the 1921 Census.?
To me this census should hold or may hold, fill in some of my gaps that are missing of information?, hopefully it will have the answers ? ( or will it just add more confusion?) The findings that I have on my predecessor's - I have collated together from 1905? Information that I have gathered. The 1921 Census will be / is the last one that I will be able to research? I'm in my mid 70's I cannot see me being around for any further Censuses, the next one to be released from the 1921 Census will be the 1951 Census. ?
The 1931 Census was totally destroyed by fire.
Census for 1941 did not happen because of the War, but thankfully we had a pre second world war 1939 Census taken.
I have my research from the approx. time / year of 1918 and following on from has brought me sort of up to date. I have mainly found the information through the Electoral Roll Registers as my Family had luckily stayed in the same area/s for approximately 50/60 years then upto the 1970's

I have to wait patiently for the release of the 1921 Census, which is due in 2022.
All research then I take it, we will have to rely on just Church records - if they have managed to survive through the war years?

Stay safe - Best Regards, JUST J

Me too. The Scottish Census will hopefully be released sometime in 2021 if things go according to plan.
The 1931 Scottish Census is safe and sound having been stored in Edinburgh and not in London so will hopefully be released around 2031.
As I am in the same age group as you Brickwall Demolisher I am now asking myself 3 questions -

1.  Will I still be around in 2031 -    That's in the lap of the Gods
2.  Will I still be of sound mind  -     Hopefully but who says I am now?
3.  Will I still be interested        -     Most definitely.

My late parents will be listed on a census for the first time. Mum was born in 1918 and brought up by foster parents. Never legally adopted as that did not come in until the late 1920's. How will she be described on the census? Can't wait to see.

I'm looking forward to the 1921 but even more so the 1931 as I'd like to see my Dad on the Census.  Lucky like Dorrie my family were in Scotland at the time.

My mother and father will both appear for the first time on the 1921 census, I know where my father was (in childrens home) , my mother will be with her parents but I`ve a choice of 2 homes as they lived with her grandparents when she was young and I don`t know when they moved.

I`m expecting Mum`s grandparents  to have various other members of the family, my 2x gt grandfather, various uncles and aunts.
