The 1911 census is available in full or in part on some of these sites. We are unable to advise on the choice of site since researchers' personal preferences will be influenced by the content and search facilities offered by each site. Some sites offer a free trial.
Access to the library edition of Ancestry.co.uk is widely available at most record offices, includingWorcestershire Archives, and some libraries. You are advised to book time on their computers before making a visit.
A free-to-view site is being developed at freecen.org.uk for the 1841, 1851, 1861, 1871 and 1891 censuses. Coverage of Worcestershire parishes is rather sparse at this time.

An extract from the Topographical Dictionary of England 1831 by Samuel Lewis:
ABBERTON, a parish in the upper division of the hundred of PERSHORE, county of WORCESTER, 7 miles (N. E. by N.) from Pershore, containing 82 inhabitants. The living is a discharged rectory, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Worcester, rated in the king's books at £5. 8. 1½ endowed with £200 royal bounty, and in the patronage of Mrs. Sheldon. Here is a mineral spring, the water of which is bitter and cathartic, being somewhat similar to that at Cheltenham.
