Census Records

All the censuses between 1841 and 1901 are now available on a number of fee-paying (Subscription or PayAsYouGo) sites including Ancestry.co.uk, FindMyPast.co.uk, thegenealogist.co.uk and genesreunited.co.uk. 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, including Worcestershire 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.

Census returns can usually be viewed at Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints' Family History Centres.

An extract from the Topographical Dictionary of England by Samuel Lewis 1831:

ELMLEY-LOVETT, a parish in the lower division of the hundred of HALFSHIRE, county of WORCESTER, 4 miles (E. by S.) from Stourport, containing 447 inhabitants. The living is a rectory, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Worcester, rated in the king's books at £17. 2. 6, and in the patronage of John Lynes, Esq. The church is dedicated to St. Michael. There are two schools, endowed with part of the profits of an estate bequeathed, at a very early period, by an individual now unknown, for the benefit of the church and the poor of the parish. This place gives the title of viscount to the Lygon family.
