These PDF downloads contain transcriptions, rather than indexes, of information extracted from various 1891 census returns, and are presented in an “as enumerated” format. As such, the researcher will be able to discover which families were travelling together.

Entries include people identified as Gypsies, Travellers, Tramps, Vagrants, Fairground Showmen and women, Circus people, Canal Boat people and Travelling Theatre people. Surname indexes are included in all volumes.
