Hi Pauline
The only Thomas Selby of that age is listed as follows
Thomas Selby 31 Lodger Marr Drover b. London St Georges
It seems he's listed in some kind of Institution, I think its the Workhouse at Whitechapel St Marys
The only Thomas Selby at Mile End is 46 and a Policeman
The ref for the first Thomas is RG12/281
Hope this helps

Its Ref is RG12/281 ED Charles William Mowl Victoria Home Folio 92 Page 14 Entry 6
Whitechappel St Mary
Thomas F Selby. Being a Drover he does look like your Thomas. I followed back through the pages right back to page 1 (Thomas is on page 14) and all it is is page after page of Male Lodgers.  They appear to all have Occupations. I was hoping to find an address but unfortunately page 1 starts with lodgers so no go on address. At least the place does have a name. Hope this helps

Hi Ann and Kris - many thanks for the info.  I don't know what I was expecting as I knew his wife had left him for another man - I wasn't expecting him to finish up in an institution.   Thomas died the following year from pneumonia aged 32.     :'(

Thanks again
