1911 U.K. Census Free to Search July-October 2013
Ancestry.co.uk has made its entire 1911 Census FREE* for a limited time. That gives you the chance to discover your family's stories during one of the most fascinating periods in British history.

1911 came right at the end of the old 'upstairs-downstairs' class system, just before World War I. This was the year the Titanic was built, and the height of the campaign for women's voting rights.

Simply type in an ancestor's name to find out what they were doing at this crucial time. Make sure you view the original record, and see if you can spot any servants, soldiers or suffragettes in your family.


*The England & Wales 1911 Census will be available to search for free from 00:00 BST on 24th July 2013 until 23:59 BST on 14th October 2013. To view these records you will need to register for free with Ancestry.co.uk with your name and email address.
