Details have been transcribed and the links above give access to the names, ages, occupations and adressess of residents in 1911.  Transcribing the detail from the 1911 Census Returns is an ongoing task!  I hope to add detail from other sources to show who was living in Burbage in 1914.

1912  The Revd Thelwall with some village lads. It would be interesting is anyone recognises them and can add names.

1913  Burbage C.E.M.S - The great and the good at the church in 1913. The vicar, Thelwall, left that year and was replaced by Sands. This was probably a farewell photo as it came from his family’s album.

1913  Actors from a theatrical production.
