† after the name of a civil parish indicates that the parish was effected by the operation of the Divided Parishes Acts, but the Registrar-General failed to obtain particulars of every such change. The changes which escaped notification were, however, probably small in area and with little, if any, population. Considerable difficulty was experienced both in 1891 and 1901 in tracing the results of changes effected in civil parishes under the provisions of these Acts; by the Registrar-General’s courtesy, however, reference has been permitted to certain records of formerly detached parts of parishes, which has made it possible approximately to ascertain the population in 1921 of parishes as constituted prior to such alterations, though the figures in many instances must be regarded as partly estimates.
‡ after the name of a parish (or place) indicates that the ecclesiastical parish of the same name at the 1921 census was coextensive with such parish (or place).

The 2001 Census led the Office of National Statistics to create short and readable county-level assessments of changes over the past 200 years - the Kent pdf file can be found here. Data from the 2011 Census can be browsed too.
