Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The Woolwich Equitable Gas Company was formed in 1832. Dissension about the price of gas in Woolwich led in March 1844 to the formation of the Woolwich Consumers Protective Gas Company with gasworks fronting the River Thames at Hog Lane. The company was incorporated by Act of Parliament in 1855 (18 and 19 Victc.ii) as the Woolwich, Plumstead and Charlton Consumers Gas Company. Around 1862 it moved to new works in Glass Yard, Woolwich. In 1884 both the Woolwich, Plumstead and Charlton Consumers Gas Company and the Woolwich Equitable Gas Light and Coke Company were amalgamated with the South Metropolitan Gas Light and Coke Company.
