The original 1865 census is unfortunately not complete. The census returns for, in some cases, complete parishes must have gone missing at the National Statistics before the material was submitted to the National Archives in 1910.  We currently know of these lacunas:

  • Gol parish in Buskerud (complete, 4162 persons)
  • Holtaalen parish in Sør-Trøndelag (complete, 3801 persons)
  • Nannestad parish in Akershus (Bjerke local parish, 1457 persons)
  • Christiania (at least 106 Speciallister; ca 3700 persons)
