  As well as the upland areas with scattered sheep farms and lead mines Llanwnog parish included the village of Caersws. Th published report which came after the 1841 census states that the population figure included 198 people in the workhouse at Caersws.
The graph reveals that after a slight fall the population rose slightly at the middle of the Victorian period and then fell sharply. Compare these figures with Carno and Trefeglwys.
Is the overall trend the same?
Why did the population fall away at the end of Victoria's reign?
