The following notes to the table appeared in the original report.

1 The Registration Districts of the County of ?? are co-extensive with the Poor Law Unions of the same names. [Exceptions to this are noted on the next sheet]
2 The differences between the Registration County and the Administrative County are shown in Table 2.
3 Parishes that are situated in an Urban District are distinguished by black type thus -- [e.g.] Llangefni.
4 The places named in footnotes as being included in Civil Parishes are generally localities having no defined boundaries, such as hamlets, villages, etc.
5 For particulars of existing detached parts of Civil Parishes see Table 13; and for changes to the boundaries of Civil Parishes effected by the Local Government Acts of 1888 and 1894, and by Local Acts since 1891, see Table 14. In the Sub-Districts marked + changes were made in boundaries between the census of 1891 and that of 1901. Full particulars of the alterations have been published in the Registrar General's Annual Reports.
6 Revised areas of Civil Parishes have been furnished by the Ordnance Survey Department; for the area of the Tidal Water and Foreshore comprised in Civil Parishes see Table 15.

This website does not try to provide an exact replica of the original printed census tables, which often had thousands of rows and far more columns than will fit on our web pages. Instead, we let you drill down from national totals to the most detailed data available. The column headings are those that appeared in the original printed report. The numbers presented here, which are the same ones we use to create statistical maps and graphs, come from the census table and have usually been carefully checked.

The system can only hold statistics for units listed in our administrative gazetteer, so some rows from the original table may be missing. Sometimes big low-level units, like urban parishes, were divided between more than one higher-level units, like Registration sub-Districts. This is why some pages will give a higher figure for a lower-level unit: it covers the whole of the lower-level unit, not just the part within the current higher-level unit.
