Emily Wilding Davison, by now a paid WSPU organizer, was already experienced with prison & forcible feeding. And she had already familiarized herself with the nooks and crannies of the Palace of Westminster. Probably on Saturday 1 April, Emily wriggled an entrance into the building, making her way down to the ornately Victorian Crypt Chapel. Here she found an inconspicuous broom cupboard ~ where she hid till Monday morning, so entering the history books. Nearby in central London, Emmeline Pankhurst evaded in her Holborn hotel (though was recorded by the enumerator). Her appearance on the census is an example of where evidence of the time (suffragette press, her autobiography) is now challenged by the newly-released census schedules themselves.
