Workplace Details From The
1911 Census

Enumerator's Summary Book 1911
An Enumerator's Summary Book

Although the 1911 Census provides us with a wealth of facts about our forebears' domestic situations and occupations, it does not usually tell us where they worked. The householders were told to enter their occupation but unless they were employed by a public body it was not necessary to state the name of their employer. Luckily for us, in addition to those who were working in 'the public sector' as we would call them today, some took no notice and stated their workplace and who employed them and these examples are shown below.
