1901 Census in Scrooby

Graham Robbins

The 1901 census return for the civil parish of Scrooby is shown below, and available here in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. If you wish to print the census, the PDF document will be better than printing this page.

The census lists all houses, with the householder and other occupants, their place of birth, occupation and marital status. Where a house had less than 5 rooms, the number of rooms is indicated.

Houses at Scrooby Top and Bishopfield are fairly identifiable, but those in the main village grouping are just listed as 'Scrooby Village'. You may be able to identify households with a bit of detective work. If you can, let us know and we can make the information available on this page.
