More generations living together

Updated: 
Welcome matThe number of households with three or four generations living under the same roof has increased to Victorian-era levels, a new study has shown.

Family history website Ancestry.co.uk said multi-generational households had risen by 7% over the past five years to more than half a million, a number last seen in the mid-1800s.

The figure will increase further in the coming years and will surpass the Victorian peak of 608,000 by 2030, said the report.

Almost a million households also have lodgers, a similar figure to Victorian times.
