1881 Census 

The Census Return Layout

By this time, the pages are more clearly written. But as with previous census returns, clearer copies still, can be gained from a journey to the Staffordshire County Record Office.

It has the same format as in 1871, the main difference being the classification of the boundaries across the top of the forms, which includes Parish boundaries. Many new churches were being built during the second half of the 19th century, and so at this time the Parish boundaries frequently changed.
