1901 Census of Sileby.

These records are a transcription of the enumerators’ sheets for the 1901 census for the village of Sileby. I have tried to minimise any transcription errors by cross-referencing with the 1881 and 1891 censuses, but there are bound to be some irregularities due to human error on my part, the enumerator’s or the householder who originally completed the schedules on which these sheets are based. There are also parts of the documents where the handwriting borders on indecipherable. Any information I was still unsure about I have highlighted in red text. Please refer to the original census records if you have any queries about the accuracy of this transcription.

The 1901 census shows Sileby as it was in the days of our great grandfathers, as the hosiery and footwear industries became the main sources of employment in the village.

The village was based on the same four streets that still form it’s heart – High Street, King Street, Swan Street and Brook St/ The Banks, with Barrow Road being very similar to it’s present size. Ratcliffe Road had grown slightly from the 1891 census, and Seagrave Road had begun to expand. Mountsorrell Lane was Church Lane, and Cossington End had been encorporated into Cossington Road.

The population of the village in 1901 was given as 2,752.
