//     after a person the last person at this address
1851 - 1901     in the Household View
//     // all occupiers at this address
//    /the first occupiers at this address
/    /intermediate occupiers at this address
/    // the last occupiers at this address
1851 - 1901     in the Address results
//the last occupiers at this address
/ there are other occupiers at this address

Houses: Apart from the 1841 census, each house was terminated with a double stroke (//) and therefore started with the terminating double stroke of the previous house. Within each house, each household is separated from other occupiers by a single stroke(/). In this transcription, the strokes are shown in the Household View after the address information, where both starting and ending strokes are given for each household. In the Address Records listings, only the ending strokes are shown.
For 1841 only, the main family is separated from servants and other occupiers by a single stroke(/). In this transcription, the strokes are shown as follows: In the Household View, after the address information, the starting // is given. The separating / and terminating // are given at the end of the line of information about the last person in the appropriate group.
