The form to request information from the 1911 Census can be found on the National Archives website here.

Advice on completing the form

To submit a request you must know the full address, including the street address (with house name or number), the civil parish, and the county. (See What the National Archives tell you below)

If you click the Help button alongside the 'Civil Parish' box on the form you're told that you must enter the civil parish from the list of 1911 parishes. But what if you don't know which sub-district the street was in?

We understand that the 1911 parishes are almost exactly the same as in 1901. Therefore if you have found the same household in the same street in 1901 you may already know the answer. 

What the National Archives tell you

Can I get any information from the census now?

In response to the Information Commissioners decision we shall respond to individual requests for some information from the 1911 census through our existing paid search service. This service is more limited, and almost certainly a lot more expensive to you, than the online service will be. Our recommendation is that you will get much more value out of the 1911 census if you are able wait until the online service is launched.

What is the service that you are providing now?

A basic research service to enable you to request information from specific addresses in the 1911 census
The 1911 Census does not have a surname index so we cannot conduct searches for names in the original documents - when it goes online this will be easy to do
We cannot provide personally sensitive information from the 1911 census

How do I make a request now?

You will need to provide:

1. House name or number / Building name / Vessel name
2. County
3. Civil Parish

Requests cannot be processed without this information.
All requests must be in writing and an online form is provided for your convenience. Go to our form to apply online

Will I have to pay for this information?

This will be a charged service in line with The National Archives paid search service - currently 45 per address search
The fee is for the research work and we will endeavour to do all we can to find the information you want.
Unfortunately we will not be able to offer refunds on unsuccessful searches
