Notes

Croydon Fire Station was constructed by the Croydon Fire Brigade in 1960, before opening in 1961 as their new headquarters.

The station was built to replace the existing station and headquarters building in Park Lane which had opened in 1906 and was subsequently demolished.

With the formation of the Greater London Council and the redrawing of boundaries, the Croydon Fire Brigade was absorbed into the London Fire Brigade in 1965.
