The 1891 Census for England was taken on the night of 5 April 1891. It has several more questions than are found on earlier census returns including questions about employment status and the number of rooms occupied in the house if less than five.

The following information was requested:

  • Name of street, avenue, road, etc.
  • House name or number
  • Whether property was vacant or inhabited
  • Surname of head of household
  • Name of persons who had spent the night in the household
  • Relationship of enumerated person to head of house
  • Person’s marital status
  • Age at last birthday (gender indicated by column in which age is recorded)
  • Person’s occupation
  • Person’s place of birth
  • Whether blind, deaf, or idiot

All responses were to reflect the individual's status as of 5 April 1891 for all individuals who had spent the night in the house. People who were traveling or living abroad were enumerated at the location where they spent the night on census night.
