It would be my great grandad on my mother’s side, I can’t find him on 1911 census, he was a very dodgy character according to my Nan and moved out of the family home when she was a child.  He died in 1923, I’m hoping he’ll show on 1921 it might give me a clue on what he was up to.

I’m keen to find my great uncle. He was a police constable in Durham, married a Durham girl in 1914, had twin daughters born in 1915, and fought in WW1 rising to be a sergeant in the Northumberland Fusiliers. He and his family should be on the 1921 census and he will probably indicate that he was born in Ireland.

Looking forward to it  :D

Hi guys,
Not much doing today as it's so hot....
So I was wondering who will be your first person to look up on the 1921 census when released in the new year and maybe why ? Will it help you break through a research brick wall that has been a stumbling block for the last ten years or even more ??

Stay safe.

My maternal grandparents and then my maternal 2nd great-grandmother... very interested in my grandparents' occupations. They would have been about 20, but I know neither were able to go beyond high school. I know my grandmother was a seamstress, so curious to see if she was working as such in June 1921.
