The 1911 census of England and Wales was taken on the night of Sunday 2 April 1911 and in addition to households and institutions such as prisons and workhouses, canal boats merchant ships and naval vessels it attempted to include homeless persons.

Research estimates that several thousand women are not found by census search.<br>[http://www.findmypast.co.uk/search/census/1911/person?ukwid=394505&amp;sourceid=1&amp;utm_source=Google+FMP+Main_CPC&amp;utm_medium=Key+Keywords&amp;utm_campaign=1911+census+ Find my Past 1911 census search]<br>
