Including historical descriptions, maps and statistical analysis.

Further information

By cross-linking occupier information in the 1911 Census with occupier information in the 1910 Finance Act survey it is possible to identify some of the present addresses of buildings and hence identify who lived there.

It is not possibly to do it for all census entries for a number of reasons. The buildings may have been demolished, the numbers written on the map by the valuer may be illegible or the map may be missing. See How its done for more information.

Additional Information

'The Bakehouse was next door to the Green Man and that belonged to the Juff family. The oldest boy Bert was the baker and delivered it on a baker's cart. His mother ran the sweet shop which was the meeting place for all the youngsters in Clophill in 1920s. Later on the bottom room became a Gents Hairdresser, run by Bill Smith from Luton.'
