Original census returns are held by The National Archives and are not available generally for direct research, but copies on film or fiche are available at LDS Family History Centers worldwide. Copies of census on microfilm are available at the Gloucestershire Archives for most parishes in Gloucestershire (exceptions are parishes which have changed county over the years). Copies for local areas may also be available in the larger District Libraries in Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire, but please check availability with the Offices themselves before your journey. For more general information, see GENUKI's Census of England and Wales, and Barry Ruck's Census - Frequently Asked Questions.
