    Default 2011 Census

    next years census will be the last
    the government is to scrap the census after more than 200 years

    the census has been carried out every 10 years since 1801 with the exception of 1941 & is an invaluable resource for family historians

    Everyone should write down all their family members now ready to hand down to future generations...I have found loads of information from all the previous census returns....its a shame but I can see the point of scrapping it

    The "£482million" anticipated cost of compiling it next year maybe the reason?

    Possibly a live database is the answer? This would be constantly updated with new information. The privacy laws would still operate with only certain levels of government having access for policy making. Future generations would have access [as we do with the census now] once the information is safe to release?

    Why can't they just do it online and ppl have to register. The database would collate everything automatically then

    It makes sense to scrap it - more's the pity. It seems to me that a good proportion of future generations won't have a clue who their fathers are anyway... and it'll be no good looking on their birth certificates either....
    Add to that the number of illegals who wont be filling them in and scrapping them makes perfect sense - not to mention the £millions it'll save. Genealogy will be a dying pastime in more sense than one.
    Never put anyone on a pedestal... THEY'LL LOOK DOWN ON YOU!
