THE QUESTIONNAIRE - 1911 Ruyton People 2020

Dear Blogger


Here is the questionnaire for this important survey into the occupations of people today compared with jobs people did in the 1911 census.

I would ask everyone who lives in Ruyton, and that includes The Cliffe, Wykey, Shotatton and Coton, to please complete the attached form and return to me either by email or by dropping into Cafe Eleven.  All working adults in your household are asked to complete the form.

In 1911 so many people worked from home or in the village however, although you might not be a blacksmith or a grave digger, it is quite likely that you sit at your computer at home as your place of work.

Many people have already expressed interest and agreed to take part.  So far only one person has said they do not want to be involved!

I look forward to hearing from you,

Best wishes from
