Parish History

CARLTON-RODE (All Saints), a parish, in the union and hundred of Depwade, E. division of Norfolk, 5 miles (S. E. by E.) from Attleborough. There is a place of worship for Particular Baptists. [1]

Carleton Rode All Saints is an Ancient parish in the Diocese of Norwich.

The size of this church and it's neighbour Bunwell, Norfolk indicate the wealth of local landowners. Chancels of this size and age are rare, and were financed by rebuilding towards the end of the Middle Ages, as happened here with the nave. Despite subsequent renovation of the interior  several of the consecration crosses from its original opening in the late 13th century remain.The three large panels of the original glass survive and are rare in East Anglia. Two of them depict Evangelistic symbols, the Ox of St Luke and the Eagle of St John,with scrolls declaring Luccas Bos and Johannes Aquila. The third depicts a king playing a harp, and is David from the Old Testament. 

The original tower suffered collapse in the 18th century, resulting in the lower tower seen today.

Census Records


Census records from 1841 to 1911 are available online. For access, see England Census Records and Indexes Online. Census records from 1841 to 1891 are also available on film through a Family History Center or at the Family History Library.

Prior to the 1911 census the household schedule was destroyed and only the enumerator's schedule survives.

The 1911 census of England and Wales was taken on the night of Sunday 2 April 1911 and in addition to households and institutions such as prisons and workhouses, canal boats merchant ships and naval vessels it attempted to include homeless persons. The schedule was completed by an individual and for the first time both this record and the enumerator's schedule were preserved. Two forms of boycott of the census by women are possible due to frustration at government failure to grant women the universal right to vote in parliamentary and local elections. The schedule either records a protest by failure to complete the form in respect of the women in the household or women are absent due to organisation of groups of women staying away from home for the whole night. Research estimates that several thousand women are not found by census search. Find my Past 1911 census search
