The 1901 Census for England was taken on the night of 31 March 1901. 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 number or name.
  • Whether or not the house was inhabited.
  • Number of rooms occupied if less than five.
  • Name of each person that had spent the night in that household.
  • Relationship of person enumerated to the head of the family.
  • Each person's marital status.
  • Age at last birthday (sex is indicated by which column the age is recorded in).
  • Each person's occupation.
  • Whether they are employer or employee or neither.
  • Person's place of birth.
  • Whether deaf, dumb, blind, or lunatic.

All responses were to reflect the individual's status as of 31 March 1901 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.
