The recent release of the Scottish 1921 Census

The release in the past week of the 1921 Scottish Census may assist Amateur Genealogists & Historians alike locate Air Force Personnel during their early life if the person they are searching for was born before the 19th June of the same year.


This is an amazing way to locate details of their early life & family.


Taken on the evening of the 19th/20th June 1921 this much anticipated collection has been released on the Scotland’s People Website rather appropriately on St Andrews Day. The cost per entry is 6 credits which equates to £1.50.



Returns contain the following: -


· The address where the family lived, number of rooms in the house along with details of the number of people in the household.


· Name, relationships to head of house, age, sex, birthplace & nationality of individuals.


· Occupation & the status of that occupation e.g., Retired or working. Unlike previous Census returns it also lists who their employer was.


· Details of National Health Insurance & ages of Dependent Children.


Given that the release of this collection was delayed it does mean that we have much less time to wait until the release of the 1931 Census.


Bear in mind however that the 1931 Census for England/Wales was destroyed by fire.


For me it was lovely to view the entry of my Grandfather aged 13 who was living above the Public House owned & ran by his father. With 10 Brothers & 1 Sister most of the boys would serve in the Air Forces during both wars. This included his brother Mac aged 22 who by now had returned from World War 1 as an Ace with a DCM & Ronnie aged just 2 months who would later serve during World War 2 in Bomber Command.
