This a rare surviving copy of an 1811 Census for Mossley, which I have been given permission to transcribe. Unlike the preceeding one for Ashton, the Mossley Census does not provide even approximate addresses, which is a great pity. Again the enumerator was given four columns to indicate whether the families were involved in farming, manufacturing, handicrafts or other trades. Manufacturing would have been mostly cotton spinning and handicrafts would likely have been hand loom weaving.
