The United Kingdom Census of 1861 recorded the people residing in every household on the night of 7 April 1861,[1] and was the third of the UK censuses to include details of household members. The census was taken and recorded everyone living in a household on Sunday 7 April 1861 [2] The 1861 format of the census was identical to the previous 1851 census, despite pressures for 'religious affiliation' questions to be included, this suggestion was rejected at the time.[3]
