1911 Ruyton People 2020 - if your on the 1911 census?

Dear Blogger

I am still hoping I can persuade those of youwho said you would take part to complete your details for the 

1911 Ruyton People 2020 Research Project

I particularly want to hear from people whose family names appear in the attached list of names in the 1911 census.

I KNOW there are several members of those families still in the village so it is particularly important for them to be included in this research.

The list might even get people interested in their own FAMILY HISTORY.

Please add your details, especially if your family name is included in the attached census list - IT`S NOT DIFFICULT.

Many thanks to all those who have already responded to the questionnaire.

 Please complete the details below of everyone in your household - Names and emails will not be made public, we just want to know what work you do (or did) and any voluntary work you do, especially at the difficult time - and that is not difficult either!


just want to compare the work done by people in the village today compared with the 1911 census.

 Wykey, Coton, Shotatton, The Cliffe and Platt Bridge are included as part of our community.

Perhaps if I make it all much simpler, we can get everyone on board.  Just reply to this email answering the following questions for each of the adults, including students, in your household.

    other current occupations
    Do you work from home or travel to work?
Are you RETIRED?

Voluntary work includes WI, Village Hall, Garden Club, History Club, or any other committes or voluntary work out of the village.

At this difficult time, please add voluntary home deliveries, etc connected to the Coronavirus, this will add a new dimension to the survey.

                                                          IT`S NOT DIFFICULT!                   

Many thanks, Yoland
