The largest number (105) can be traced in the ward of Grays Riverside. The smallest number (30) is in Corringham and Fobbing.

Sixty four people can claim to be putting the Ock in Ockendon, Forty-eight in Wee Thurrock Rectory, Fifty-three in Hamesteads and finally eighty three in Chadwell St Mirren.
