I had intended to try and marry this up with the 1881 census, but I don't seem to be able it find it (458 Bethnal Green Road). I've done a little digging and confirmed that the station was an operation station as early as 1868?

Are these the ones who were lived/lodged at the station, or would there have been others with homes of their own?

I'm interested, as I spent the first 9 years of my life in a police-house umbilically attached to a small police station.

Hi SC

You mustn't expect that everyone who was in the division slept at the police station. It was only compulsory for prisoners.

For 1881, just search for Sophia Quigley.

PS Haven't you missed out Gerald Ashman from 1891?

Working from the 1891 census that there were only 13 bobbies living in the station, perhaps the same amount again living locally/section house(s).
26+ constables or their abouts attached to the station.
Working 3 8 hour shifts - days,lates & nights (more on duty on lates and nights, but shorter beats than during the day) roles being on the beat, fixed point in the station (on reserve). Roughly 20 bobbies on duty at any one time, with perhaps 12-15 on the beat. Beats ranging from right outside the station to perhaps 20 or so minuted walk from the station. All would parade at the station then be escorted to their beats by the shift sergeant.

Can't see Gerald ASHMAN on the census, where does he fit into it?

Can't find Sophia QUIGLEY either?

Additional Officers I have come across, who must have lived married quarters or certainly living elsewhere.

Insp John SPRATLING 18, Gore Road, Bethnal Green.

With so few bobbies actually stationed at Bethnal Green it is surprising that more aren't mentioned by name. There are numerous officers just refered to as 'a constable', in the case of Poly NICHOLS their names lost forever to history. It stands to reason that some of the ones listed about must have been involved in this capacity, but are now just recorded as `a constable`.
