Census records

a. 

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

Non-Conformist Chapel

Great Moulton Congregational. The "tin church" is now preserved at the East Anglian Museum of Rural Life in Stowmarket Suffolk.

The building was manufactured by Boulton and Paul of Norwich in the 1890's and served for a century as a meeting place until the Congregational Church built new premises.

Great Moulton Chapel, Church Meeting minutes
Date 1898-1940
Description Exterior photograph, balance sheets, and papers re sale of chapel, 1970-1971, inserted.
This Undenominational Congregation was formed as a result of the secession from the Church of England in 1845 of Robert Govett (1813-1901), previously curate of St Stephen's parish, Norwich. The immediate cause was Govett's views on infant baptism. Surrey Chapel was built in 1854 to house the congregation. It was financed and managed principally by Govett himself and in consequence it is not until after his death in 1901 that a Committee was formed and the series of Church Meeting and other minutes begins, though Govett's printed pastoral letters commence as early as 1847 (nos. 59-60 in list). Small mission churches were established at Stoke Holy Cross, Bramerton, Great Moulton, Swardeston, Saxlingham Nethergate, Marlingford and elsewhere
