How To Access The 1921 Census
Here’s everything you need to know about the release of the census records on Findmypast
The 1921 census of England and Wales will be available to everyone from 8am on 6 January 2022. Researchers will be able to both search and view individual records from the census digitally for free if they visit TNA in Kew – the original paper records are stored off-site. Users of findmypast.co.uk – both in libraries and at home – can search the census for free, but must pay to view the records using micropayments (which have replaced credits) on the website. Each record transcript will cost £2.50 to view, while you’ll pay £3.50 for original record images. There will be a 10 per cent discount for all 12-month ‘Pro’ subscribers to Findmypast.
