Streets Sunderland 1881

Trying to find an overview of all streets with corresponding RG xx/xxxx and folio number of Sunderland census 1881

I have most of the other overviews but not 1881

Find the Enumeration District info, which you access from the image of one of the census returns for the area.

Is there any reason for not identifying the area?

BUT......if you have the other years, not sure what the problem is. The procedure is identical for all years

Thanks Reggie,

Derby Street 1871 is on RG 10/5005
Derby Street 1891 is on RG 12/4133

I found the other overviews here:

But there's none for 1881
I sometimes search for streets not for names, because there are so many transcription errors in the names

Folio 104 - 106

Yes, I just found that too,
but it would still be nice to have a full overview of all streets, maybe I'll make it myself when I have some extra time

You can search 1881 on Ancestry by address

Reggie - how do you do that on Ancestry, I' ve never been able to work it out?

Can do it OK on FMP.
