1891 Census...

          Name: Edward Poole
           Age: 19
Est Birth Year: abt 1872
      Relation: Boarder
    Where born: Walworth, London

St Saviours, All Hallows, Southwark
ED: 5  Piece: 342  Folio: 112  Page: 13

NOTE: I have a really strong feeling that this is the right Edward Poole. After their father disappears, Arthur & Edward are no where to be found in 1891. But in 1893 Arthur is in Orange Street, and their mother is in Pepper St, just around the corner from them. Plus his occupation is a Porter in a Book Binders, and later his trade is a Book Binder. 

Apart from the Head, a Clerk in Holy Order, & a domestic the other boarders are all around the same age as Edward.
