Census forms detailing the lives of 36 million people in England and Wales in 1911 were made available to view on ancestry website

The 1911 census is the oldest from which the original forms were kept and the first to record full details of British Army personnel stationed overseas.

It covered England and Wales, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, plus Royal Naval and Merchant Navy personnel who were on their vessels.

Eighty percent of the available records from England have been uploaded and the rest will go online in coming months.
