Enumerators’ summary book images are live on findmypast.com

Our sister-site findmypast.com has now added a full set of 1911 census enumerators’ summary book (RG78) images, all of which can be viewed via their new subscription. When you view a 1911 census image on findmypast.com you will now see links to the accompanying summary book pages in the frame above the image (as shown below).


Find out what it was like in your ancestors’ neighbourhood

The enumerators’ summary book (RG78) images are filled with useful information about the neighbourhoods in which your ancestors lived and they can also reveal details of relatives living nearby.

The new images include:

• the front page of the volume in which the enumerator’s summary sheet was stored.
• enumerator’s summary original page - this not only shows the names of heads of households and how many people occupied the houses (showing you the neighbours), but also lists other buildings, whether houses or not.
• population statistics for the area.
• a description of the Enumerator’s walk.
• a map of the Enumerator’s walk (in some cases).

New household schedule images

As well as the RG78s, we’ve added some extra RG14 household (or institution) schedule images, which also make interesting viewing:

• The address panel from the back of the schedule, showing the address as written by your ancestors and the registration district and subdistrict
• The front page of the volume in which your schedule was stored, giving more detailed information on parishes and districts

Please note: some household schedules do NOT have Enumerators Summary Books, as a small number did not survive.

    Well I subscribed for the 1911 and wow…fantasic.

    Takes just a while to find your way round and I now realise it would have cost me a small fortune as Pay As You Go to find my families in London, common names need lots of searches.

    Would be useful to see how the credits are being used on My Account page so as to judge when I will run out…if ever.

    Have to say all in all its worth it….for me

    RG78 is great but almost impossible to browse

    let alone bookmark
    very very irritating and not user friendly

    but very handy when an image was missing
    I could prove that schedule existed in 1911

    Hi Hugh.
    Have to admit that the 1911 in its present form is really hard work.
    Trying to find a small Welsh village has seemed impossible to find but after about 4 hours hunting down with all the clues I could muster I located it.
    I didn’t even have a name to help, they are all the same in West Wales it seems’…only joking for the folks connected to Wales. Goodness knows how many transcripts I needed to be downloaded, at least a hundred I guess so imagine what that would have cost…bear that in mind folks if you dont have a subsciption.

    My worry is I could be cut off the system as I might be deemed an over user but honestly I find nothing is straight forward with far to many transciption errors in this 1911.

    My overall feelings are the 1911 does work resonably well but I just wonder if the folks behind the scenes ever try to use it. Try letting much older mature folks try to make sense of it all and not the 12 year olds I suggest.

    I agree Hugh its iritating and non friendly to use… but wow thanks for it before 2011.

    its quite useful to use 1911 to find the people in UK and its only cost a small fortune..and use to get appropriate neighbourhoods information..good post

    I find all these census sites do not come up with known relatives in known addresses, which I put in just to try out the site. Meanwhile, they eat up my credits for zero information. I shall avoid them in future.

    1911 census documents are very hard to read. Images are not very clear. Should have translated typed information with it for people to understand or able to read the census documents.
