Black sheep in your family ?

Try looking through the following list of prisoners for Wakefield Prison for the census night of 1901

part 4

Census R13/4286

Number of Officers 12 female

Number of Prisoners 479 male ; 123 female = 602

Children of Prisoners 1 male ; 1 female = 2

I have used abbreviations for married (m), single (s) and widower/widowa (w)when the person is born in Yorkshire I have just put the place. I have tried to decipher some entries but where I am totally unsure I have used **. The 1901 enumerator has placed his 'tick' marks through the profession and age headings, therefore, quite a few will have **. I have placed (?) before full missing words and after words if there is doubt over the word. I have used a copy Postal Addresses and Index to Postcodes to help with place names.

!! Note: As with all transcripts - if in doubt, try and check with the original !! The transcripts are only as good as the deciphering of the person doing the work.
