The Wright family in 1911

Please click on the 'Wright' tab on the right hand side to find more information about my great-grandfather Harold Wright, his parents and family. The 1911 census does not add to
o much extra information to what I already knew - All four children were born in Acomb, Henry Cecil Wright b1897, Harold b1900, Ethel b1902 and Kathleen Maud b1905.

In 1911 the three younger children were at school and Henry (named Harry on the census) is an apprentice cabinet maker. Their father Henry Wright (b1868, Acomb) is working for North Eastern railways as a wagon maker. This census also confirms that Henry and Ada Wright had only four children all of whom survived. They are living at Gale View, Acomb in a house with 5 rooms.
