From Hell

Factual error: The scene including the appearance of Joseph Merrick is not correct. The scene shows us Frederick Treves presenting John Merrick to the other doctors. He calls Merrick 'Joseph', but someone corrects him that he should call him 'John'. That is not correct: in real life Treves was the only one who instantly called him John, while his real name is Joseph.

Factual error: The first time you see the Royal London Hospital, the sign says "The Royal London Hospital". In fact, the hospital has only been known by this name since 1990. Before that, and certainly in 1888, it was called The London Hospital. Many people in the East End of London still refer to the hospital as "The London".

Factual error: In the gallery, Prince Albert's portrait has his title as "Duke of Clarence". The movie is set in 1888 and he did not receive this title until 1891.

Mistakes

The first time we see the young doctor doing his "lobotomy" in London Hospital (to the girl that was married to Prince Edward), Ian Holm comments on the procedure for some guest as they stand behind a glass window. You can clearly see the young doctor doing the third strike with his hammer in a reflection in the window. The movie cuts back to the young doctor and he is doing the third strike for a second time.

Trivia

When the Ripper is talking to his driver in the apartment, it's actually Ian Holm's voice, he just talking really low.
