Interesting that they categorize JMB as "married"; the instructions do not offer the option of "divorced".  However "widow" and "widower" are two distinct options, reflecting the fact that one meant a different social status than the other.

Back in 1911, divorce would have been rare (and shameful) so they probably still categorised divorced people as 'married'. But there is no social difference between 'widow' and 'widower' -  they had to give both options (still do),  depending on whether man or woman was entered on the list.

What I find interesting is that JMB was at the Llewelyn Davies's house in Campden Hill Square on the day of the census, and not at his flat at the Adelphi. I wonder if this was deliberate, and he made a point about wanting to be included with 'his boys' on such a day?
