As a few people have expressed interest and may have missed earlier
postings to the list on this subject; the following will supply
copies of the 1891 census:

NB These are copies of the original census, not a transcription and
not indexed.

The Public Record Office - sell the census by Registration District

Download, a private company - their website is useful in breaking down
the census by county and then registration district.

S&N Genealogy - a private company who have the laudable aim to scan
original census returns and put them on DVD and CD-rom. To date they
have completed London 1891 and are now working on earlier London
Census returns. They are shortly to release Lancashire and Yorkshire
Census for 1891.

Directories can be a useful tool and are widely available and
affordable. The following companies provide a good service:

Archive Books - have the widest selection and cover the whole country

Archive Britain CDs - sell CD-roms mostly covering Hampshire but also
have Some Navy Lists available and a Marine List.

Stepping Stones - produce directories of Northern Counties

Charlbury, Oxfordshire
