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.

Guest speaker: Tony Miller

The History of Whitechapel Mission

Anthony moved to London in the early 1980’s and became involved in the Whitechapel Mission as a volunteer, serving the homeless with food, showers and basic care. He agreed to take a full-time roll at the Whitechapel Mission and develop the services and the charity.

Anthony now runs the Whitechapel Mission with a team of 15 staff, a host of dedicated volunteers and larger numbers than ever coming to the door each day.
