1891 United Kingdom census

The United Kingdom Census 1891 was a census of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland carried out on 5 April 1891.[1] A question was added to record the number of rooms in a household, in response to concerns about overcrowding in cities. This was also the first census to employ women census takers and the first to ask in Wales about the ability to speak Welsh.[2]
