South East London Cockneys[edit]

Southwark is closer to St Mary-le-Bow Cheapside than Mile End or Stepney. Bermondsey and Rotherhithe are opposite Wapping - just on different sides of the river. Not all Cockneys are from The East End, there are Cockneys in South EAST London also. Best wishes, Lion King. —This unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 2006-07-17 00:51:50.

I agree completely. A true Cockney is anyone who was born within the sound of the hour bell of the church of St Mary-le-bow which is in Cheapside NOT the East End of London —This unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 11:29, 8 August 2008.
