Counting down to the 1921 Census

In the aftermath of war and pandemic, approximately 8.5 million householders in England, Wales, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man completed the 1921 Census. In this episode, we’re exploring the enormous digitisation project undertaken by Findmypast, and asking our family history specialists what to expect when we get to see the census.

The 1921 Census will be available on Findmypast in early 2022. If you’re interested in learning more about the history of the census and how it can be used for research, visit our dedicated census portal.
