English census dates

The 1841 Census was the fifth decennial census of the population of Britain, however it was the first useful census to genealogists interested in their English heritage, as it was the first time that names of individuals within each household were recorded, along with their ages, occupations and places of birth. Only census data up to 1911 is available for public viewing.

You can use the date that the census was conducted in combination with the birth year listed to help determine the correct date of birth.
