I did come across a lot of family groups in Yorkshire villages in some
censuses where every member was "N.K." for name, age, occupation, place of
birth etc.

>From some who gave their place of birth they appeared to be Irish itinerant
workers (living in tents I seem to remember).

You could try searching for names like that as I suspect that some of the
Gypsies might be similarly suspicious of authority.
