Can I access the original documents of the 1921 Census?

There are no plans to provide access at The National Archives at Kew to the large volume of physical documents that make up the 1921 Census of England and Wales. Now that Findmypast has completed scanning every household schedule, and in order to preserve the highly delicate physical documents for future generations, the original paper census returns of the 1921 Census will be kept in secure storage by The National Archives. Findmypast’s intuitive search experience makes it far easier to explore the 1921 Census online.
