1891 index - Register No RG12/2757.

This is only part of the census index for Clay Cross.

 

The records are sorted by Last name/Folio/Page. The highlighted section below shows all those with the same last name in one household, although there might have been more people of a different surname in that particular household on census night. See second example. When viewing the film of the census at your local history library, you will be able to go straight to the Folio/Page where the household will be listed under the schedule.

In the printing trade the "folio" is the sheet of paper, which means it pertains to both sides - 'recto' and 'verso'. The folio number is the large printed number in the top right-hand corner of the sheet /page. (There is a page number as well). You need to check both sides of any
given folio. Details about Folio Numbers is from Blanche Charles.
 

Example of the information that is available.

I have sorted all of the indexes and found this household. The lady at the top being 29 years 
older that the next, I assume could be mother and son, who took in boarders to pay some of the
household expenses.
