Factual error: When the cook attacks the chimney sweeps, she uses a non-stick frying pan. Non-stick frying pans weren't invented until the 1950s, and the movie takes place in the 1910s.

Factual error: At the end of the scene where Bert is a one-man-band, he smashes a cymbal on his forehead at the end of his song. The cymbal could not make any sound as he is holding it with both hands, preventing any vibration.

Factual error: The local police constable wears the divisional letter 'H'. H Division of the Metropolitan Police covered Whitechapel. While it is never specified where the upper middle-class Cherry Tree Lane is, it's certainly not in Whitechapel, which was a solidly working-class district in the heart of the East End. He also wears his letter and number on his helmet plate, a 19th century practice that had been abolished by 1910.
