The addresses at Artillery place, Albert Hall, Stow Hill and Caroline street were sourced from Kelly, 1895. Lime street and Caerleon road are recorded in Kelly, 1914.

The first drill hall was erected in 1867, in Dock Street. After that,in 1875, the Royal Albert Hall (Drill Hall) in Stow Hill was opened.

The Star of Gwent. 30th May, 1874, reported:
"On Whit Sunday the members of the 1st Mon. Artillery Volunteers attended a church parade. It was hoped that there would be a good muster, and considering the facilities for holiday-making and getting out of town at this time of year, no complaint must be made in this respect. There were about eighty men on parade. The roll having been called, they started from the Drill Hall in East Market Street at 10.30, headed by the band of the Corps; they marched along Dock Street, Commercial Street and Stow Hill to St. Woolos where an impressive service was held."
