This is Emily Wilding Davison's second census form. It is an irony that when some suffragettes were trying to evade being recorded in the census, Davison was recorded twice - in Parliament, and also at her lodgings in Russell Square. It looks as if the census enumerator completed this form, presumably with information given by her landlady.
Davison's personal details are more accurate on this form than the Parliament form; her surname is correctly spelled, her age as 38, her occupation is 'Political Secretary' and her birthplace is London.
