Block Management Whitechapel
As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Whitechapel.
History of Whitechapel
Whitechapel is part of the East End of London, situated 3.4 miles east of Charing Cross. Whitechapel High Street is named after a small chapel of ease, dedicated to St. Mary. In c.1338, it became the parish church of Whitechapel, and was then called St. Mary Matfelon.
During the 19th century, the area was unfortunately associated with poverty and suffering, especially the small streets just off Whitechapel Road. Charles Dickens, the writer, cited such areas in his novels, to describe filth, poverty and overcrowding.
In 1865, William Booth formed the Christian Mission, to help alleviate suffering; and in 1878, the Salvation Army followed this aim. Booth is commemorated with a statue, for his good works in Whitechapel.
Joseph Merrick, (1862-1890), otherwise known as the "Elephant Man", due to his physical deformities, was renowned in Whitechapel: he was exhibited in a shop on the Whitechapel Road. However, Frederick Treves, (1853-1923), a surgeon at the Royal London Hospital, opposite the actual shop, agreed to help Merrick, and ensured he was looked after for the rest of his life.
In the late 19th century, many immigrants came to the area, especially Irish and Jewish.
Much of Whitechapel, including the original St. Mary Matfelon church was destroyed in a Blitz, during World War II, (1939-1945).
The 2011 census showed the area's population, to have a total 14,862 residents. Today, Bangladeshis make up the largest migrant group: 40% of the population of Whitechapel.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Whitechapel
I had a good look around the Whitechapel Market, and there was some lovely food on offer. Whitechapel Market on the Whitechapel Road, specialises in food, and is ideal for fresh produce, meat and bread. Bangladeshi and Asian communities are vital for the market, as their range of ingredients is a benefit for any foodie.
