View the 1911 census for free on findmypast.co.uk

View the 1911 census for free on findmypast.co.ukUntil 18 November 2012, view a 1911 census transcript for free on findmypast.co.uk - this usually costs 10 credits.

We've also lowered the cost of viewing an original 1911 census image - you'll pay just 5 credits instead of 30.

Even more good news: we always try to offer you the best possible value for money, so when this offer ends on 18 November, we'll permanently reduce the price of viewing the 1911 census to 5 credits for a transcript and 5 credits for an original image.

An example of the fascinating insight the 1911 census can give us into the past is the census return on the right. Mary Howey, a 27-year-old suffragette, demonstrates her political views by writing 'votes for women' across her census form.

In the infirmity column of the census, Mary wrote 'not enfranchised', which the enumerator has crossed out in red
