Many archives and local history collections in public libraries in England and Wales offer online census searches and also hold microfilm or fiche census returns.

The 1851 census of England and Wales attempted to identify religious places of worship in addition to the household survey census returns.

Prior to the 1911 census the household schedule was destroyed and only the enumerator's schedule survives.

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. The schedule was completed by an individual and for the first time both this record and the enumerator's schedule were preserved. Two forms of boycott of the census by women are possible due to frustration at government failure to grant women the universal right to vote in parliamentary and local elections. The schedule either records a protest by failure to complete the form in respect of the women in the household or women are absent due to organisation of groups of women staying away from home for the whole night. Research estimates that several thousand women are not found by census search.

Parish History

'WANDSWORTH All Saints, a parish, and the head of a union, in the W. division of the hundred of Brixton, E. division of Surrey, 6 miles southwest from London. This parish was built at least by the year 1603.
The parish church (as of 1848), was one that was re-built in 1780. Additional churches, St Anne, erected in 1822 and also a chapel in the hamlet of Summer's-Town, called St Mary's, built by 1840.

The Baptists, the Society of Friends, the Independents, and Wesleyan Methodists, have places of worship; and there is a Roman Catholic chapel, consecrated in November 1847.'[8]

In 1850, St Anne's Wandsworth became its own, separate parish.
