The Population of Richmond: 2011 Census

A follow up to the census article at the end of last year, this  post focuses on the population of the Borough.  All in all, we had 186,990 residents across the 18 wards in 2011 – and approximately 10,000 people in each.

You can see the breakdown below… but keep reading for a few (hopefully interesting) snippets.

2011 Census, Richmond upon Thames
ward name residents
Barnes 10299
East Sheen 10348
Fulwell and Hampton Hill 10131
Ham Petersham and Richmond Riverside 10317
Hampton 9985
Hampton North 9387
Hampton Wick 10221
Heathfield 10313
Kew 11436
Mortlake and Barnes Common 10919
North Richmond 10649
St Margarets and North Twickenham 11172
South Richmond 10820
South Twickenham 9987
Teddington 10330
Twickenham Riverside 10396
West Twickenham 10528
Whitton 9752

OK – the interesting snippets:

  • Mortlake & Barnes Common has the highest number of children under 4 with 1029 – which is 9.4% of the total population of the ward.   49.56% are male – so 9 more girls than boys.
  • South Twickenham has the most late teenagers (15-19) at 767, which is 125 more than Heathfield in 2nd place.  Can’t think of a good reason for South Twickenham to be so far ahead – perhaps its connected to education?
  • Mortlake & Barnes Common also have the most residents aged between 30 and 40 (and also up to 44).  So I expect that ties in to the previous baby data… and again just slightly ahead of St Margs & North Twick.
  • Both Kew and Hampton Wick seem to be the places to live between 45 and 54.
  • Between 60 and 70, its a very close call between Hampton, Teddington and Kew.
  • At the top end of the census, there are four wards with more than 100 people 90 years old or more – Kew, Hampton, Hampton Wick and Twickenham Riverside.   Bad news for us local men – the highest number of males over 90 in any of the wards is 35.
