London Census name indexes and transcripts 1841-1911 are available online.

A census name index is an index of names compiled from the census records, and enable you to search for a person by surname, forename and age. Transcripts are more detailed than indexes, and enable you to search across all the fields, such as occupation and address.

Transcribing the census for a large counties like London is a mammoth task and a huge amount of manpower is required to compile these records.

Smaller UK-based companies, societies and individuals have been compiling census name indexes covering particular counties or areas. Cultural, historical, geographical knowledge of the UK and an interest in genealogy gives them an advantage in producing more accurate results than other companies outside of the UK.

To remedy this situation, two major UK-based genealogy companies, S&N Genealogy Supplies and British Data Archive, have funded a census name-indexing project, and have worked tirelessly to create indexes and full transcripts. These transcripts are now available online. Thousands of volunteers from all over the UK have since contributed to this project. S&N are also funding major transcription projects enabling millions of new records to be added to online databases.

The census and official records of birth, marriage and death do not go back as far as parish records. Parish Records started in 1538 when Thomas Cromwell, the Vicar General to King Henry VIII, declared that all marriages, christenings and burials should be recorded. For years before the census began, London Parish Records are a very useful resource. A wide range of London Parish Records is available on CD and online.

Other useful resources are London Directories, which are also available on CD and online.
