Location of inmate records for Holloway Prison in 1901

I am trying to identify why a relative was listed as an "inmate" in Holloway prison in the 1901 census. Her name was Isabelle Dearing. Her daughter Dorothy aged 3 months was also listed. I do know that the entire family was split up as a consequence. She is listed as a widow although she was only married in 1887. Her son John Wilfred Dearing (b1890) is in St Joseph's home in London and her daughter Kathleen Dearing (b1888) has been adopted by a a family in Hampshire. Does anyone know how I might get hold of prison records for Holloway or could help in this investigation?

PS The family name was (correctly) given as Deering in the !891 census. I do not know wht it was changed for the 1901 census.
