Description and origin of this 1891 Census project:

A number of volunteers have contributed Name Indexes for the 1891 Census for the particular villages linked below. This was originally a project to index the surnames in the complete 1891 census for Norfolk, but that project is no longer running because the Public Record Office is using this census as its pilot for the national 1901 census. The 1891 Norfolk census was available on line from the Public Record Office for a period during 2001, but is no longer available on-line. However, the names indexes to the 1891 Census, prepared by volunteers will continue to be available on this web-site.

The original documents are held by the Public Record Office. Copies on microfilm are available for consultation in the Local Studies section of the Norwich Millenium Library, and elsewhere.
The Norfolk Record Office web-site contains a complete list, for downloading, of their holdings of Parish Registers & Transcripts; and on each village page of GENUKI-NFK (linked from my pages) you will find a link at the top (Nearby Places) to a page listing villages within 5 miles, with further links for these.

There is general information about the various Norfolk censuses from 1841 to 1891 (and some before 1841) in the GENUKI Census Page. for further information. AND do not ignore the information and advice available on many other pages of the GENUKI-NFK web-site.

Each of the pages linked below gives a Name Index to the 1891 Census of the relevant village, often with the relevant folio and page numbers, to help you to obtain more detailed information. Each page also gives the name of the volunteer who produced the index, together with an e-mail link where that volunteer is prepared to do specific lookups.

But PLEASE NOTE:

Names occurring in the various villages are also indexed under A-B, C, D-F, G-H, I-M, N-P, Q-S and T-Z.

Full Censuses are available for 1841, 1851, 1861, 1871, 1881 and 1891,
[see Census Details (GENUKI-NFK)],
and for particulars of earlier censuses see
Pre 1841 Censuses and Other Names Lists [GENUKI-NFK].

Also note: [Added 22 April, 2003]

Futhermore, remember ancient documents are often very difficult to read as you will as you will find if you look youself at a 19th century Census return or parish register - so that, unless you have an external clue, such as knowing the district or the family, it is all too easy to make mistakes - and although the LDS and others make every effort to get transcriptions correct (very often using two transcribers and checking one against the other) mistakes still occur.

You should never take another person's interpretation as surely correct - all the web-pages and CDs are indexes offering you help, but no one claims they can be error-free.... and it is up to the user to check against the original wherever possible.
