Can someone clarify the schedule column on 1901 (first column)?

I have the person I want, who was a widow. She's at the same address as another family, but has a different schedule number. However in "relationship" she's listed as wife, married.

I'd expect to see boarder - she doesn't seem related to the family, none of her daughters match the wife of the family at the house. I'd think it could be a mistake by the enumerator, but he has listed a widowed daughter of the family also living at that address as "wid".

So what does same address but different schedule number imply, and is her relationship and marital status just a slip of the pen?

Thanks

I'm sure someone can answer this but in the meantime:

A different schedule number was allocated to each household, in the order that the enumerator visited them. As several households sometimes occupied one address, you may find several schedule numbers attached to a single address.
