We will soon publish the 1901 Scottish census on findmypast.co.uk, marking the completion of our project to bring you the 1841-1901 Scottish census collection.
The 1891 Scottish census could bring you crucial new information about your ancestors, so it’s well worth a search, even if you haven’t been able to find who you’re looking for in the earlier Scottish censuses.
The high quality of our transcriptions makes it easy to discover the crucial details about your ancestors’ lives. It is not possible to view the original census images on findmypast.co.uk, due to the licensing regulations of the General Register Office for Scotland.
