There may be more people living in detached parts of the parish (if there were any) and, if so, the number may or may not be included in the figures above. It is quite difficult to be sure from the population tables.

"By Local Government Board Order, No. 44,367, which came into operation on 1st October, 1902, part of Felbrigg Civil Parish, containing neither houses nor population, was transferred to Cromer Civil Parish."
