Part 6 – Cranworth Gardens on the 1901 Census – Who were the first tenants?

From looking at the Census of 1901 it appears that the first tenants of Cranworth Gardens were mainly skilled professionals, some of which were clearly rather wealthy – Solicitor, Professor of Music, Chartered Accountant and ‘Living on own means’ to name but a few. The exact type of class that Cranworth Gardens was built to attract appear to have filled up the flats straight away. 

In the tables below you can see who lived here in 1901, the very first occupants of Cranworth Gardens. The street was built north to south, the top end of the street was built first and so the information in the table features the tenants who were occupying the blocks that had just been built, the street was barely half finished at this time.

I have transcribed the information from the 1901 Census and created tables which also feature Kelly’s Directory 1901 data for who lived here. The data from Kelly’s Directory was gathered slightly later in 1901 than the Census was done and so there are more people listed. Kelly’s Directory only lists the ‘Head’ of the household so the Census gives a closer and more detailed look at the tenants. The Census and Kelly’s directory only list which block the tenants lived in and not which individual flat. All Census information is transcribed from the 1901 Census owned by the National Archives and Copyright Genes Reunited Ltd. 2000-2012 in it’s online form.
