Googling has failed to find me an expansion of these initials. Does
anyone here know what they stood for?<
I believe the initials might actually be N.W.S.P.U (the last initial could be a "U" with an
over-long final flourish).
If this is the case, then it probably stood for Northern Women's Social & Political
Union. Wikipedia tells us that the suffragette movement was known as the Women's
Social & Political Union.
Clara was probably some kind of organiser in Liverpool, in which case I am slightly
surprised that she didn't boycott the 1911 census, as many suffragettes did.
