Alva King transcribed more than 26,000 entries from the 1901 census for Nuneaton and the immediate surrounding area. Alva transcribed these records and made them available for researchers to use freely.   However, she did not want others to profit commercially from her hard work and we ask that you respect this. Please DO NOT copy these files and/or distribute them for commercial gain.The data have not been double-checked (although some corrections were made to the original database in October 2010) and so all of the usual disclaimers apply. You should regard this as a secondary source for your research (data © PRO). Should you wish to check the transcription against the original entry, we have recorded the HO reference with page and folio numbers. Please note the 1+ 2+ etc refers to the number shown on the microfiche and is not a necessary part of the reference number. 

How to use the searchable database

The database is indexed in alphabetical surname order and there are 2 tables to search: A-J and K-Z.

You can browse the whole database or you can search, using keywords, for specific surnames, occupations or locations etc. Please note that searching for "Smith", for example, may also list other surnames which contain Smith i.e. Arrowsmith, occupations which contain Smith i.e. blacksmith and locations which contain Smith i.e. Hammersmith. To reset the database or to view the whole database after a specific search,  just delete the details from the "search" box and click go.

If you wish to view a household, you can either search by address or find the RG reference for one of the people at an address then search using the RG Reference (the 1+ 4- etc relates to the reference as it appears on the fiche from which the entries were transcribed). The "ID" field refers to the order in which the entries were input into the database and so shows the order that people were listed in a household.

Please note that any unoccupied buildings have been removed from the searchable database.


Should you find any errors in the 1901 census index, especially where the entry has ? next to it, please contact Jacqui simkins so that the data can be corrected.
