This week, the Island Book Trust is commemorating the evacuation of Mingulay a hundred years ago, in 1912. As part of that commemoration, I am posting the census return from 1901 from Mingulay, being registration district 108 and enumeration district 4. Each household is shown in a block, starting with the head of the household, their name, age and occupation (if known). Last year, I briefly touched on the demographics of Mingulay between 1851 and 1901.
