The returns also record details of the houses, giving the number of rooms,
outhouses and windows and the type of roof. Family members of those not
present when the census was taken are not given. The same information was again
collected in 1911, with one important addition: married women were required to
state the number of years they had been married, the number of children born
alive and the number of children still living. Unfortunately, widows were not
required to give this information, although a good number obliged in any case.
Only the initials, not the full names, of policemen, soldiers and inmates of mental
hospitals are recorded.
