      The 1841 Census for England was taken on the night of 6 June 1841. The following information was requested:

      • Name of persons who had spent the night in the household
      • Age*
      • Sex
      • Person's occupation
      • Where born**

      *The ages of people over 15 years old were usually rounded down to the nearest 5 years. Therefore, someone who was actually 24 years would have their age listed as 20, and someone who was actually 27 years old would have their age listed as 25.
