Occupations of Appleby People

Summarised from the 1911 Census

Coding systems have been around for much longer than modern computer systems. On the 1911 census, people were asked to state their occupations, and census clerks then added official occupation codes to the documents. Chris Bee has summarised these from the Appleby census, showing that out of the population of 675, 379 were given an occupation code, which included school children and retired people, but not pre-school children or wives.

The list is here to download as a pdf file:
