Welcome to this new site, currently being developed to provide information about the 1921 census of England and Wales.

The 1921 Census was taken on the night of Sunday 19th June 1921. It had been originally planned that the census would be taken two months earlier on 24th April 1921 but this was delayed because of strikes.

It is unclear when the 1921 census will be made available. The ruling by the Information Commissioner that resulted in the 1911 census being opened early does not apply to the 1921 census because, unlike the 1911 census, the 1921 census was conducted under the 1920 Census Act, which is still in force and which contains a statutory prohibition on disclosure.
