The following transcription is of my photocopy of the 1871 census for Reiff. The photocopy is pretty clear in most places.

The columns on the 1871 census read;

     Males.

The enumerator numbered the Riff households from 56 to 80, I have identified the households by using a prefix of "71" to denote the 1871 census data, and a suffix based on the enumerators numbering.
