The history of Clophill, Bedfordshire, UK
Including historical descriptions, maps and statistical analysis.
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.

'6 High Street was the village carpenter, Jim Whittermore ran it with his son Arthur and he was also the village undertaker. He had no car for the business so, when someone died in the village, the coffin would be carried from his workshop to the house. If they had a carpentry job, Arthur would take all his tools on his bike – but you never saw him ride the bike, he was always pushing it. The single storey is the old carpentry part of the house, the rest was added later.' Jack Pitt's Clophill Memories.
