How can I find the 1931 Census please?


Reggie Report 22 Jul 2013 11:07

You can' doesn't exist

And, in any case, it would not have been released to the public until at least 2032


Astra Report 22 Jul 2013 11:08

I'm afraid you can't and never will. It was destroyed.
If it existed it wouldn't be made available for public viewing until 2031.

Destroyed in World War 2 which is why there is not a 1941. After the 1921 (which SHOULD be released in 2022) the next is 1951.

If you are looking for specific people, you could try the Elrectoral Roles for the area.

If your ancestors were Scottish, you 're in luck - if you can wait until 2031/2.
The Scottish 1931 census was not destroyed, as it was stored in Edinburgh.

I would like to thank everyone for their comments. I am not familiar with searching and technology so forgive me. Happy searching all.
