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.

'... and at 58 Wal Young lived and kept a small sweet shop; he had a son, Frank, who died in infancy and as the funeral procession passed the school all the children came out and sang the hymn 'Jesus tender shepherd hear us'.' Jack Pitt's Clophill Memories.
