"The Registrars General 1836-1945" is a PDF file available at URL:
It is really a history of the UK census, from the perspective of the various
Registrars General. I found it fascinating and I hope that you will too.
Incidentally, I don't know how one would normally access this file - I could
find no way to do so from the usual way into this website, or from the site
layout etc. I only found it by accident whilst looking for something else.
If you are in UK, I hope you are all enjoying your long weekend.
