According to Janes, a bit heavier than Hood at "standard displacement", considerably heavier fully loaded. Then again, Hood was really a battle cruiser with added armour even if it was heavier than any of the RN's WW2 "real" battleships. 
Since any new battleship had to be able to sort out the other sides latest, there was a tendency for later designs to be steadily more capable.  This meant more speed, powerful weaponry and better protection.  To get more of everything with the same basic technology meant a bigger ship to carry it all.
