Census finding aid for WALES

This set of PRO census piece numbers transcribed by Gareth Hicks (Dec 2008)

On The National Archives online catalogue it is possible to identify which parishes or townships are included in a particular census piece-  
This is done by entering the series code and the piece number, e.g. HO 107/1358 (for part of the 1841 for Anglesey) in the search box  "type reference here."

Or it's possible to search the same catalogue in reverse (to identify which piece number a particular parish or township is part of) by putting a place name in the "Word or phrase" field and "HO 107" (for the 1841 census) in the "Department or Series code" field.

For further data on Registration Districts, see Genuki, and for census returns in general, again see Genuki
