Lifeboats by you.Safe at Sea - The Thames Estuary has claimed many lives so it was no surpise that the first lifeboat station was set up in Southend in 1879; since then the crews of the lifeboats have successfully saved over 2,000 lives.  The lifeboat station was based at the end of the pier pretty much as it is today.  the first lifeboat was named on 13th November "Boys of Englnad and Edwin J Brett".
