Notes:

The following notes to the table appeared in the original report.

1 The Registration Districts of this Division are co-extensive with Poor Law Unions, except ...
2 Where the name of a Registration County in which a Parish is situated differs from that of the Administrative County to which it belongs, the name of the latter is added in italics. [further information on special cases in the specific division.]
3 (W) or (W.S.) denotes that a Workhouse or Workhouse School belonging to the District is situated within the limits of the Parish; (w) or (w.s.) that one of these institutions not belonging to the District is situated therein. A statement of the number of persons enumerated in Public Institutions in each District will be found in Table 8.
4 The places named in footnotes as being included in Civil Parishes are Hamlets, Villages, etc, or localities having no defined boundaries.
5 Under the Divided Parishes Acts of 1876, 1879 and 1882 numerous detached parts of Civil Parishes have been amalgamated with other Civil Parishes, and a statement of such transferences is given in Table 14.
6 Revised areas of Civil Parishes and parts of Parishes have been furnished by the Ordnance Survey Department.
7 The areas marked thus (w) either include water or relate to Parishes to which a portion of the tidal water or foreshore of contiguous rivers or creeks has been allotted. Such tidal water or foreshore is, however, not included in the areas. For details see Table 11.
8 Persons who, on the night of 5th April, 1891, were on board barges or boats employed in inland navigation, and those who were on board sea-going and coastal vessels in harbours, rivers and creeks, are included in the general population. For details see Table 9.

This website does not try to provide an exact replica of the original printed census tables, which often had thousands of rows and far more columns than will fit on our web pages. Instead, we let you drill down from national totals to the most detailed data available. The column headings are those that appeared in the original printed report. The numbers presented here, which are the same ones we use to create statistical maps and graphs, come from the census table and have usually been carefully checked.

The system can only hold statistics for units listed in our administrative gazetteer, so some rows from the original table may be missing. Sometimes big low-level units, like urban parishes, were divided between more than one higher-level units, like Registration sub-Districts. This is why some pages will give a higher figure for a lower-level unit: it covers the whole of the lower-level unit, not just the part within the current higher-level unit.
