"The Norfolk Record Office is one of seven archive services in England and Wales which is offering free access to the online 1911 census, thanks to a partnership with The National Archives. As part of its commitment to broadening the availability of its records, the National Archives is funding up to a year’s worth of free access to the online 1911 census in each of the seven archives.

Access to the 1911 census is via two terminals in the Norfolk Sound Archive Listening Room. Printing will be available at a charge."
