Work in progress
Because by statute the census returns require the occupants of every property to be accounted for, they provide the most accurate listing of all streets and properties currently available for the time at which they were taken. They act as a useful check on the more frequent but often less accurate street directories.
At each decennial census the country is divided ito enumeration districts and sub-districts. The districts are named (Palace, St Peter's and Kemp Town in the case of Brighton) and the sub-districts numbered. Some districts, such as Aldrington prior to its absorption into Hove, were too small to have sub-districts.
