1841 - 1911 census records

Some common errors that can be found in census returns are as follows: Errors in recording census data As illiteracy was quite high in the 19th century, many people may have asked their friends, neighbours or even the enumerators to help fill out the forms. In institutions or on vessels it was the person in charge of the prison or ship who completed the details on behalf of everyone in the institution or on the ship. This led to many errors in note taking and in recording the final information. Typical mistakes were made when spelling peoples’ names, or noting their occupations, or even when recording their ages. Age discrepancies Whilst enumerators and the officials at institutions made mistakes when recording information, individuals who completed the forms themselves also made some errors. Name changing.
