  • H Division Station Houses

    Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere.

    How many H Division Station Houses were there and where?

    64 Leman Street was one (before being "upgraded" to a station), 102 Mile End Road was another.

    Any more?

    I have a mini-project in mind for my next visit, hence the reason for asking.

    Hi FK,

    There might be someone on here who knows this or you might want to post this on a thread that I began a while ago.

    Im unsure how often he looks in these days but in case you didn’t know Monty is Neil Bell. You probably already have this book but if you don’t then it’s highly recommended.

    He really knows his stuff on police history.

          I saw that. Now, I bow (street?) to the superior knowledge of you all on here but according to Survey of London with regards to 64 Leman Street: "For a few years in the 1820s, No. 64 was used as the Whitechapel Watch House, then, after the formation of the Metropolitan Police, it was converted in 1830 to be a police station and section house for H Division, covering Stepney. By 1849, the police had acquired new premises, adapting houses further south along Leman Street, and No. 64 was converted to use as a cigar and then a gun factory." https://surveyoflondon.org/map/feature/89/detail/

          (I should have made it clear that I'm not just referring to 1888 - any pre-1900. Deepest apologies.)

          There was also an on-line map - of course, I can't find it now - which showed a 'police station' at 102 Mile End Road. Presumably this. (Ironically two doors along from where one of the Kray's "casinos" would be.)

            .....
            Right, so that is why we now have No.76 Leman St. as the Headquarters.
            I've looked for a Goad Map, but it doesn't seem to have been made for that location.

                Now working through Mr. Monty's book - I suspect that I'll find all the answers there.

                  Capturing Jack the Ripper, pages 42-43, the four stations previously listed are described except Leman St. is given as 74-78, and King Davids Lane is 10-24. Otherwise, its the same.

                    Four and five doors up, the Poor Jews Temporary Shelter and the East London Blue Riband Shoeblack Refuge and the Whittington Boys Club & Chambers, a Protestant establishment (in 1888).
