Welcome to The Whitechapel Society

The Whitechapel Society 1888 is a historical society that promotes the study of the Whitechapel murders and the social impact that this event had on the East End of London.

Victorian and Edwardian life and culture in the East End of London also features in the interest of the Society along with other true crime events that are often intertwined with the Whitechapel murder and the East End in general.

Next interim meeting

Saturday 7th July

The day event will be a visit to the Thames Police Museum at Wapping. The Thames police is our oldest force and the museum reflects this. The museum is housed in what was the old carpenters workshop and is run by the Thames Police Association. It is right near Wapping Tube station.

In the evening at The Chamberlain Hotel, normally commencing at 19:30 hrs but best to get there early, is a discussion entitled “Alice Mackenzie – Was She A Ripper Victim”?

The Identity of Jack The Ripper still remains the greatest enigma in the annals of unsolved crime

Professor William Fishman
