1921 Census

5th January 2022

From 6th January 2022, Findmypast will be the only provider giving access to the 1921 census online. Access to the index will be free but full transcriptions and images will only be available via pay-per-view access for the initial period and via a personal account.

The Census will not be immediately available within any public subscription, this includes the Record Office and Leicestershire Libraries.

Searchroom users will still be able to purchase 1921 Census returns like any other user via a personal account only. They will not be able to do this within the Library/Record Office account. (This is to ensure that credit card details cannot be shared or compromised when using public computers).

The census will be available to view for free online by visiting the National Archives in Kew, Manchester Central Library and the National Library of Wales only.
