Census Series Codes

Here are the department series codes used by The National Archives to catalog the census.
The letters 'HO' stand for 'Home Office' and the letters 'RG refer to the 'General Register Office.'
Both were government departments responsible for collecting census data at different times.
These numbers are written on the bottom or side of each census page.
They are used in census indexes, in combination with enumeration district numbers and page and folio numbers, to help you find a family or address in the census.
