  • K Division Stations.....

    Am curious to know how many stations or section houses K Division had in and around Poplar/Limehouse can anyone tell me?

    Does anyone know which station Police Sergeant Robert Golding and Police Constable Thomas Costello were based at?

      Hi According to the inquest article on Times Digital Archive his number was 26K so I assume he was assigned to the K Division. Also as Costella was with him on his rounds its possible he was K as well...

      Hopes this helps

        Just found another earlier article mentioning Thomas Costello and his number is said to be 194 K.

          Could be Arbour Square (I went to school there) which is up Commercial Road past Berner Street to the east, about 1/2 mile on the left. Or Shadwell both were K division:Stepney.

            I'm assuming that they either served at Limehouse or Poplar Stations. Although I leaning more towards Limehouse as that appears to be nearer to the crime scene?


            With regards to Arbour Square and Shadwell, I think I'm right in saying that both of these stations were on H Division.

                Simon many thanks for this!!!!

                It would appear then, that perhaps the East India Dock Road station was in fact nearer to the crime scene, than the Limehouse one?

                Can anyone confirm firm which station these two officers were stationed at?

                  Hi Station Cat,

                  Are you certain that Robert Golding wasn't Eccles Golding?

                    Robert G. Golding, retired police sergeant, was living at 1 Brunswick Street, Poplar, in the 1891 census.

                    From the National Archives Discovery Catalogue:

                    Robert G Golding, warrant number 46955. Joined on 29 Jan 1866, and left on 25 April 1890. Last posted to K Division as a PS.

                      He must have been demoted at some point, for in 1881 he was living at Enfield and gives himself as an Inspector of Police.

                        In 1891 Thomas Costello was at 235 Brunswick Rd and he was a night watchman.

                          Arbour Square and Shadwell were K div until the 1886 boundary changes made to create J div.

                          Then they were moved to H div.
