The Royal Navy maintained H.M. Naval Prison, Bodmin in Cornwall from at least 13 August, 1890 although the facility was then a century old. Before that, the naval prison was H.M. Naval Prison, Lewes.

As of 1914 the staff consisted of a Deputy Governor, a Chief Warder, three Principal Warders, and nine Warders. Capable of holding 100 prisoners, at the end of 1913 it held 24.[1] In 1918 the average daily number of prisoners held was 84.[2]
