1881 UK Census
There are a total of 1669 Shakespeares (various spellings) listed for the whole of the UK:
The Index is available in several formats: (in alphabetical order by Christian name, except first entry which will be corrected once work is complete - a quirk of the software used!)
Text - a simple text file for easy printing
Rich Text Format - downloadable file in tabular format
Although the 1881 census is now available both online and as a set of CD Roms these last two versions will allow users to have a printed version of the index to enable easier searching. This will also be of interest to those looking at name/ county distribution.
