Vanishing for the vote - census schedules
1911 was a time of frenzied political activity - including of course the Votes for Women campaigns. With the Liberal government's forcible feeding of hunger-striking suffragettes in prison now in its second year, militant suffragette organizations called for a boycott of the census. Many did support the boycott.
The following 18 census schedules detail responses of those who refused to sign - 'no vote, no census'.
