Census for Great Britain
This section shows the number of GRAY and GREY names recorded in the census indices held by Ancestry.co.uk on the 1st November 2009. The data is split into that for England, Scotland, Wales, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. It should be realised that the data is only as accurate as that given to the enumerator, how the enumerator recorded it and how people transcribed the data and input it into Ancestry’s database. On top of that, there could be errors I’ve introduced in extracting the numbers from Ancestry’s web-site. Because of this, not only should the data NOT be seen as the official Ancestry view, it should ONLY be used as an indication of number of these names actually extant at the time the census was taken.
