Gibraltar Census 1921

Archives! The Gibraltar Census of 1921, was taken on the night of Sunday 19th June 1921, simultaneously with that of the United Kingdom. The census was taken along the same lines as that of 1911, i.e., under the provisions of “The Census of the Population Ordinance, 1868”. For the purposes of the 1921 Census, Gibraltar was divided into four Wards or Divisions corresponding to the Wards set out in the “City Council Ordinance”.

On the 16th September 1921, General Sir Horace Lockwood Smith-Dorrien, Governor of Gibraltar, informed Winston Churchill, Secretary of State for Colonies, that a Census of the population of Gibraltar had been taken on Sunday 19th June 1921, in compliance with instructions received. The Governor told Churchill that the Registrar of Births, who had been appointed to be the Census compiler had made a preliminary statement showing a decrease of 3,272 in the population since the Census of 1911. The total population – Civil, Naval and Military, returned at 22,095 in 1921, as against 25,367 in 1911.

The dataset provided here refers to the civilian population only, recorded in 1921 at 18,700.
