title: 1861 Census

In 1865 the Worksop Gas Company produced a large scale map showing each building in the town. This has been linked to the 1861 Census Returns and illustrated by old and new photographs of the streets. You can search the 1865 Gas Map and 1861 Census returns by the name, address or occupation of the people who lived there.




The Census return information is provided only as a guide to the people who lived in the houses shown, and their occupations, and should not be used as an alternative to the census returns available from the National Archives website at www.nationalarchives.gov.uk as errors may have occurred during the transcription from the original returns which are often difficult to read.
