Try First Name Plus Other Details
If you don’t know who else is likely to be in the household, you can narrow down a first-name search using other information you know about the person such as occupation, birthdate and place. So, if you have an occupation from a marriage certificate or a previous/later census, try adding that to the first name, birthdate and place. Remember that someone may describe themselves as a ‘shoemaker’ in one census and a
‘bootmaker’ in the next, or a ‘shopkeeper’ in one and a ‘grocer’ in another – so even if you know an occupation, you may have to think of an alternative term.
Again, thegenealogist. co.uk is best for this kind of searching, although findmy past.co.uk also performs well.
Ancestry.co.uk has not included occupation in its transcriptions of earlier censuses, so this method does not work well here.
Would you describe this worker as a baker, or a breadmaker?
