A list of abbreviations used can be found from the 1901 Victoria Census - title page.

After her census information a remarks (Rems:) section includes information that comes from many other sources. On the 1901 Victoria Census - title page there is a link to a complete list on these sources.

Note: some of the questions asked on the census were not answered. A '-' or n/g (not given) would be entered. For Sing (05/15/26) only one name was given. I have entered this as a surname but it may be a given name. Also marital status, date of birth, age, year to Canada and occupation were not entered.

While most of the census is clear some information is not legible and 'unreadable' has been entered.
